Cardstock Only, no DP!

How often do you use cardstock only? I've looked back at my creations and, most of them have DP somewhere on them. Tiffany challenged us to use only cardstock this week.

I decided to make a tag and use some techniques I have really been wanting to try. I used a technique that my friend Tracy teaches on how to make stems and vines for your flowers. It was very easy, but there was a little bit of drying time. I made a ton but only used a little, so I have some left over for another project.
You can view her tutorial on YouTube, her YT name is tracylovestoscrap.

This little tag was actually quite time consumer, although I don't know if it looks that way. I spent about 4 days making this. Partly because of dry time and partly because I kept changing my mind on how I wanted it to look.

Here is what I came up with...

Be sure to check out what the other designers at ScrapTiffany created using only cardstock, and since you're there....why don't you play along with us this week!
