Flight of Challenge (Card Positioning System 109)

Today's entry combined two challenges, CPS 109 with the Hero Arts Blog challenge this week to make a one layer card using at least one Hero Arts stamp.  To do this I first cut a piece of regular typing  paper the size of the card front and cut a hole in the center using a Spellbinders 
Nestabilities circle.  Using repositionable  adhesive I placed the typing paper on the pink card front and using a Prismacolor pencil I made a line of color on the  inside of the hole.  Next I softened the edges using a paper stump with Gamsol. I stamped the  Hero Arts girl in the center of the circle opening with black Memories ink and likewise colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  Next I removed the mask with the hole and placed the "typing paper circle" over the colored "hole".  I stamped the Hero Arts oriental flower border so it would resemble the two necessary elements on the CPS sketch. I proceeded to color them as above.  Finally I stamped the Rubber Stampede Posh Impressions cherry blossoms around the card front using Versamark ink and then embossed those images with clear embossing powder.  I think it sort of looks like a window card without a real window.  This sketch would have been very easy if I had cut and pasted to create the three necessary elements, but doing it all by stamping and masking made it into a "real challenge".
