No Embellishments - Gasp!!!

Oh my word, NO, nada, none, zilch No embellies. Can a card be made without any?  Well I was given a challenge to make one, "gasp". In my CraftyCardCreators yahoo group we were given just this challenge last week. Boy, this was a tough one! I mean NO ribbons, no bows, no flowers, no brads, nothing! So here is what I came up with:
so, from this view it looks normal, kinda bland. Because I couldn't add embellies I decided to try my hand at paper piecing....
Can you see the layers? It's really hard to photograph and show the layers (and even more so when you can't take pictures to begin with, LOL)
I actually love the look of this. In person it's much better, I promise.  I'm definitely trying this out on more cards. More cards with embellies of course!!!
I'll post more pictures tomorrow night of a couple of cards I've done. Oh and I won a blog award...I'll be posting that too!
Enjoy the rest of the week!
