Cupcake Craft Challenge 35

The current challenge over at Cupcake Craft is to make a one layer card!

"What that means: You may have one layer of cardstock other than your image and base. You could even just stamp on your base card. Its up to you. But you may use as many embellishments as you want eg. flowers,ribbon, buttons etc."

You all know how much i love my designer papers, but of course for this challenge it has to be kept very simple to meet the requirements, so.................here's what i made.......I have used a pre folded 5 x 7 card and inked the edges with a Colorbox cats eye then added some dotty doodling with my Zig pen. Onto this is my one layer of card which has all the stamping and embellishments added.

Dove brushes to create the background
Main image.... Penny Black 'Andante'
Dragonfly and texture stamps.... Laxmi Designs
Sentiment unknown(sorry!)
Inks.... Adirondack, Versafine & ColorBox
Stickles.... Rhinestone
Gems.... Papermania
ribbon from stash

It's been absolutely ages since i last made this type of card.......i do think we get a bit 'stuck in our ways' sometimes and forget about all the other lovely stuff that we all collect :) I really enjoyed making this card and playing along with the challenge!
Thanks for popping in today..... my BG 'Wisteria' should be arriving today! WoooHooo!!! enjoy your Friday! ;-D
