JUST NOT ME…..

I decided to combine the SUO challenge blog challenge of a one layer card with the color challenge again this week - but heck, I am just NOT the one layer card girl……what can I SAY???? I wish now that I would have made one card for each challenge but the hour is late and it's been a ROUGH day for me, and I am gonna download this puppy and hit the hay. I even bombed the color challenge because my Tangerine Tango pad was like DRY and I had to substitute old Poppy Parade, (which I like better anyhow but it looks too red??) Some days are diamonds, some days are stones, isn't that the way the song goes? Well THIS one was a STONE, and I just wanna go to sleep and wake up tomorrow and start over.  One fun thing on this card before I go is the BOW.  I did a huge workshop in Eastern Ohio and someone there showed us how to make a bow by weaving ribbon back and forth on a FORK.  No kidding.  So I tried it with the cording from Saleabration which is one of the freebies, and I kept on weaving it back and forth, back and forth, and then you tie a separate piece around the middle and I got this little sort of sunburst of cording, pretty cute on my boring one layer card. :) Okay, enough sad sack stuff from me for one post, tomorrow's another day. :) His mercies are new every morning, and I can't wait. :)  Until next time……Karen

While I am used to seeing your gorgeous layer upon layer creations Karen, I certainly think you got this one layer card just right. I love the mosaic stamping and the sentiment banner in black makes it almost pop off the page anyway. Your embellishment is so cute and a lovely way to finish a great card. I wish my stone days looked this good!

I agree, you're not a one layer person, but the one you did looks fine to me. As to the "fork bow", I was there to see it done, and haven't tried it myself yet. Yarn might look kinda neat, too. I like what you did with yours.

Can you tell me what stamp you used that says "Just because"
I really like it or did you free hand it?
