A most difficult challenge...

You would think a simple,
single layer layout on a card would be simple!
Think again!

The Waltzing Mouse sketch challenge this week is to create a card using only ONE layer...that means no die cuts, no mats, no layers of any kind!
 For those of use who love to use ribbons, and trims, and all sorts of goodies piled on our cards, this was HARD!


 I stamped and embossed the label from Waltzing Mouse "Holiday Labels 14"
and the sentiment from "Rescue Remedies Additions" directly onto pattern paper from Prima's "Songbird" collection.  Then, I stamped and glitter embossed a few extra little
birds!  It was really difficult to walk away at that point.  This really challenged me as far as keeping it simple and one layer!

This is beautiful Jan! It's funny how we are all a bit scared of the one layer! But you have made a beautiful card using the pretty label, and the soft delicate colours. Great job!

Wow, this looks like so much more than a one layer card! This is beautiful and I love the glitter birds!

Oh sparkly green birds! Just the thing to turn a one layer card into a one layer wonder :) Love the labels and the birdies look right at home on that Pretty Prima paper (say that 5 times fast ;)
