Less Is More and One Layer Wednesday

I have so much fun making one layer cards!  They are just so easy, and if done correctly, they look awesome.  The One Layer Wednesday challenge was Yellow, Orange and Aqua with the Less Is More being a one layer framed image.  Well, I framed my colors and I am thrilled with this card!  I stamped the frame and the sentiment with PTI's Framed. I then took post its and framed the frame to sponge in my colors.  I pulled out my round flowers (Inkadinkado) and stamped them. This is also my first time for playing in CAS-ual Fridays - color blocking. It looks easy, but really this took me a good 1/2 hour to make!  (Well worth to me).  I sure didn't want to miss out on my favorite challenges!
Thanks for stopping by~
 ps - do you Blogger people like this new system?  Wow - huge change I am still adjusting.

Susan Raihala said...

First of all, I had totally missed that you were Queen over on SCS...must go play that challenge since you are such an inspiration to me! Congratulations!

Second, my first thought when I saw your card was "OMG, she took forever to make this!!!!" All that masking and sponging and lining up the frame so perfectly! Well worth the effort. PLUS, you got such intense color from the sponging...very dramatic and fun!!!

Michellem said...

WOW!!! This card is the best!!
