The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - NO FRILLS Challenge

Greetings Everyone!
It's another "Farm Fresh Friday" over at
The Greeting Farm

This weeks challenge is a NO-FRILLS challenge!
You know what that means don't you?
It means you will need to create a card WITHOUT the use of Frills!
No ribbon, flowers, lace, etc. Nothing too frilly or girlie!

This was NOT an easy task for me, but while searching
through some old sketches, I found one that would work perfectly, and I could get away with very little embellishments.  I just like my ribbon, and doesn't EVERY card NEED a flower? LOL
Thank goodness I had this great big snowflake brad.

This is what I came up with

I colored Ricky & Maggie with copics, added a little bit of fine white glitter for the snow and then set right to work one just HOW I would manage this NO FRILLS challenge.
I wasn't sure I'd like it, but once I finished I was actually happy with the outcome. 

What a cute pair these two make, Maggie better watch out, I think that Ricky is already planning his next move.

So get your thinking caps on, and lets see what you all come up with for this VERY CHALLENGING Challenge using
