Farm Fresh Friday


CAS TGF
K.I.S.S. Challenge
Today's Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is: Keep it Simply Shaped. NO DIE CUTS, Nesties, Etc. Only shape it the way you can cut it with a regular Trimmer. Be sure to check the Farm Fresh Friday Challenge for all the details and how to win a FABULOUS prize.
I have to tell you I freaked when I read this challenge. No Nesties!!! It's been years since I made a card without Nesties. How was I going to make a nice card with out circles, ovals, or some kind of shape!!
Well I thought Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #51 (MTSC51) is perfect for this challenge, as all the shapes on this sketch are square or rectangle. Thanks again Mercy for a FABULOUS sketch.

So after I finished my first card, I decided to try doing another.
