So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Hello Good Friends

This is for Speedy the Cat's Challenge #73 - One Layer Card.   (here is the website)

It was indeed a challenge for me to do a One Layer Card as I don't usually do that! BUT....got it to work!! :-)) I used a Sizzix embossing folder, Elegant Vine and Flair and sponged the folder with Rich Cocoa Memento ink before I ran it through the Cuttlebug. Then ran it through on first Kraft cs from GKD and thought it was a little dark...then did White cs from GKD and thought it was brighter. Both cards will be down below.

Then used Mark's Finest Blackberries, Sunflowers and Bees stamps with Tuxedo Black Memento to stamp the image, colored with Copics and Sakura glitter pens. On the inside I used Moxxie Autumn dp and the sentiment from MFP Take a Peek went on the bottom card inside. Both sentiments were cut with LAbels 4 diecut by Spellbinders. Added a little bow with brown/white cord, some bling and a couple of stickers.

This was white cardstock

Inside...had to have  layer here! :-)

This was Kraft cardstock
