Crafty Cardmakers #50 One Layer Card

Good afternoon everyone, how you all doing? Hope you're all happy and well.

My lovely friend and very talented teamie Lisa has set a really fab challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.

Which is to make a one layer card.  My first reaction was.... Help! I don't know what to do... those of you who visit me know I like to chuck loads of fussiness on my cards. But I had a go and although I know  it's not great, I am quite pleased with it.



Although this is not my usual card style, I really enjoyed it. I inked the edges with Spun Sugar and Dusty Concord. I then stamped a Kanban image in the left hand corner and over stamped a LOTV sentiment. I just could'nt resist adding a couple of tiny black gems in the top right hand corner. This is something I will definately be trying again. 
 
So Thank You  Lisa for setting us a really great challenge.  I hope you will all join us and also check out my teamies wonderful creations.
 
Also, I had a little surprise on Saturday, I came top 3 at A Gem of a Challenge. Thank you Janet, Lisa and the lovely DT, I'm chuffed to bits.

  8. Hi Donna, you did a fabulous job on a one layer card, it is such a difficult thing to do as we do like our layers and embellies! I love the colour edging, which is perfect and that stamp looks gorgeous against it. Hugs, Teresa

  27. Donna this is one amazing card. I love the colours and that Kanban stamp is fab, I really was surprised when you said it was Kanban as it is really crisp and I didn't think theirs would be all that good.

    I am afraid I bottle out of this challenge as I just couldn't get inspired by it. You have done an amazing job with this.

    Love Mandy xxx
