Cavalcade of Cardstock

We thought (ok at least Lauren thought, lol!) the No Patterned Paper challenge was going to be a tough one but every single one of you ROCKED it! If you haven't already checked out the Readers' Gallery, we highly recommend that inspiring trip; meanwhile here are three cardstock-centric cards that especially caught our eye:

...pieced together four embossed cardstock squares in two vivid shades to create a background perfectly matched for her stylishly stamped and colored snowperson! 

...cleverly used the Bargello Technique with brightly colored scraps set off by a dramatic black frame which makes that gorgeous diecut poinsettia stand out even more!

...not only met the brief, she exceeded it with a one-layer CAS masterpiece for which only WHITE cardstock, a couple of stamps and coloring implements were needed!

We'll be back at Midnight with a brand new challenge that we hope you'll think is (Tic-Tac-)TOE-tally awesome! ;)
