One Layer Wednesday

I am so HAPPY!  The One Layer Wednesday Challenge is baaaaaaaaaaaaack!! They took the summer off, and while I think Jennifer and Susan thought it went fast, me on the other hand - not so much - I thought it took forevah from my favorite challenge to return!

While these one layer cards take less than 5-10 minutes to make, there is a challenge of sorts.  The placement of your image, sentiment etc are important.  You can have a terrible OLC, or a well balanced, pleasing to the eye card.  Just ask the one layer card guru, Susan, over at Simplicity blog - she'll tell you, in fact check out this and this.  SHE GIVES LESSONS on them! (well kind of - hints and statements anyway :)) Told ya, there really is a thought process for these fun cards.


Meanwhile, the challenge today over at Styles Ink One Layer Wednesday Challenge is a baby card.  Perfect!   One of my co-workers is pregnant!  Because she is new pg and doesn't know the sex, I went with a soft, neutral green. I dug out my Stampin Up I'm Here set, and I  used the fun technique of striping (with copics) my ribbon.  Yep, stripes work for a baby.

I am working on a few other cards [for today] so I will probably be back. Thanks for stopping by~

This is really lovely - I do like the little foot and the alphabet stamp. The ribbon is fab - you drew the stripes on yourself? Fab!

This EXACTLY what I was looking for. I knew it as soon as I saw it. Thanks for the idea. I have a baby shower this weekend that I need to get a card ready for.
