One Layer Fabulous

Today I am playing in 3 challenges, 2 are one layer cards.  I love making these, but don't mis-read - these are not so easy to make.  This was my 3rd attempt!  Balance is so important on a olc.  I'm struggle with every one of these I make.

I still am not sure I quite accomplish the balance, but 3 attempts is my limit. HA!  I am entering this into the Hero Arts July One Layer Challenge, CAS on Sunday #37; one layer wonder and thanks to Pals Paper Arts #210 for the awesome color combo; Basic Grey, Lost Lagoon [I had to substitute Baja Breeze] and Pool Party.  I used Hero Arts, Floral and Thank You For Being My Friend.

It is also fellow Teammate Monika's, birthday and the Team is helping her to celebrate!

 I used STAMPlorations, Happy, Chevron & Arrows and Boxed Blooms.  I am entering this into CASology 103; Glow.  My rose really does glow! :)


Monika - Have a fabulous birthday with friends and family!!  Enjoy your surprise celebration with the Team too~


Thanks for stopping by~

Two absolutely stunning cards, Vicki!!!
The balance on the first one is definitely perfect!! I love that bg stamps and the flowers are so beautifully stamped over it!! The bow is the perfect finishing touch!!!
I love the vibrant colours on the second card and the yellow bg is beautiful!!! The rose is just sunning with the shine on it and I love the way you have done the sentiment!!
Both gorgeous card!!!
