One Layer Spring Cutie!

I have another challenge to share today. Big surprise, right? I think I have almost over 2 dozen challenges bookmarked. Challenges are like cobwebs around my house, the more you find, the more you find! I love 'em though! A good challenge always gets me motivated.

So, today's challenge is from the girls at Stampin' Royalty. They called for a Single Layer Card. This is a tough one for me, but I have been trying very hard to simplify my some of cards. Surprisingly, it didn't take long for the idea OR the actually construction. Yipee!The stamp set is Flower For All Seasons, which I colored with my Blender Pen and Stampin' Pastels. The sentiment is from the retired hostess set, Baskets of Fun. The frame around the image is sticky tape, heated slightly and covered with Dazzling Diamonds. Love this! It was my first time trying it and it won't be the last! I want to point out that my card base is Stampin' Up! Naturals White cardstock. It works great as a card base because the weight is so much heavier than Whisper White. Plus, it had a little bit of visual texture (click to get a good look.) Sorry the picture isn't the best, I had to take it in the evening.

So, it should be a fairly quiet weekend around here. I will be helping my daughter with her Science Fair project, but you know they'll be some stamping going on, too! Have a great weekend!


  1. Gorgeous card! My favourite part about these challenges is all of the amazing ideas that everyone is sharing! Thanks so much for playing with us at Stampin' Royalty!

  2. You are so right about using Naturals White to get a heavier cardstock. This card is awesome. Too cute - and very original. Thanks so much for playing with us at Stampin Royalty.

  3. Perfect and I am going to steal this one!!!! Love it!

  4. Love the glitter in a square like that. Really adds a lot of pizzazz to a simple card!
