Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  Do you have green on?  If not, watch out for those pinchers! LOL!

Ready for another challenge?

The challenge this week, the 3rd week of the month, is technique week.  The technique is KISS:  Keep it Simple Sweetie!  This will sort of depend on your style.  Like if you always use a lot of layers then keep it less, or less embellishments, just make it a simple project.  You have until Friday, March 23rd to link up your creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR38.
Here's what I came up with:

This challenge was hard for me!  I used no stamps, only some rub ons and I feel like this card really NEEDS
something, but I refrained from adding anything and 'kept it simple sweetie'!

Card Base: SU Buckaroo Blue 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Ruby Red 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", DCWV 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   NONE!
Ink:  Ruby Red (sponged the edges)
Stamps:   NONE!
Accessories:  ONLY some scrap ribbon!

Now inspiration from the
Hiding in My Craft Room Design Team

Jessica from Craftin' and Stampin'

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!
Thanks so much for visiting me while I am
Hiding in My Craft Room!
