Just 'THE ONE'

Our HOSTESS for this weeks Wild Card Challenge
over at JUST US GIRLS  is the very talented
SHARYN
and she has chosen
A ONE LAYER CARD.
 
As with a lot of us we tend to shy away from them
because it is so much easier to add things.
Am I not right???
Well this got me thinking and it took me a
wee while to come up with something 'simple'
So here is what I made.
 
 
I got to ink up a couple of stamps
that I had in my stash but lay dormant.
Thanks Sharyn for making me search
for something suitable.
Products I used are -
Basic card stock
Floral/leaves stamps are from
Gina K Designs and Stampin' Up.
Tim Holtz Distress Ink in
Antique Linen Abandoned Coral
Peacock Feather Cracked Pistachio
Sentiment is Casual Fridays Stamps.
I was going to either score or add a line
either side of the sentiment but thought
better of it as so many times I just want to
add one more thing and I spoil it so....
I left well enough alone.
 
This is the last week for our
October Guest Julie Gearinger
who has contributed some beautiful cards
for us this month. Thanks Julie.
 
Pop over to Our Blog and
check out our ONE LAYER CARDS.
You won't be disappointed.
 
Thanks for dropping by.
Hope to see you over there this week.
Till next time

You are right, one layer cards are a bugger. It means I have to really be creative and not rely on patterned paper to make the card. Love your take on the challenge, it's a good one. Gorgeous colors and great layout. Thanks for the inspiration!

Yes I am in agreement Ina, added layers is what I do best and besides that is how I cover up all my mistakes! LOL You have a gorgeous one layer card here and I think you might want to try one layer more often you have excellent results!
