warmest wishes...

Hello... The week has rolled around to weekend and that means a new challenge is up over at Less is More.  This week is the dreaded one layer challenge and to make things even more difficult Chrissie and Jen are asking to use a card base that is not white, cream, kraft or black.  It must be a color!  Good thing my first card turned out to be a complete hot mess because I would have had to redo it anyway as I made it using a black card base!   So... went back to a tried and true layout and I came up with this little number:


The card base is PTI's Winter Wisteria and the stamps are from the Stampin Up! set Blooming with Kindness.   I stamped the flower using the very old SU! in color ink Vintage Violet and the sentiment using black it.  To add a bit more interest to the card I painted on some Diamond Stickles to portions of the flower.   Easy peasy lemon squeezy!! 

Thank you kindly for stoppin' by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Winter Wisteria; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Diamond Stickles

Isn't it awesome the depth that certain images, all by themselves, can bring to a one-layer card? The addition of your carefully placed sparkles is the icing on the cake of this stunning and elegant beauty, Rosemary.
