A true challenge!!


Ok , so at my monthly demonstrator's meeting our challenge was to come up with a one layer swap card! Piece of cake! (or so I thought!!) This was by far the hardest challenge I have ever participated in! I was 100% stumped! When it came time to sit down and create this card I was stuck! It is really tough to make a card that has no layers!! Every thing I did just felt naked and blah! LOL So I decided to try to think 'outside of the box'! First thing I did was to change the shape of the card! It transformed from a rectangle to a circle via the help of my coluzzle! (LOVE that thing!). Next I used my gold marker pen to outline the edges of the card. I couldn't stand not adding something else to it though so I stamped that cute butterfly and flower from SU!'s Merci on a separate piece and cut them out and attached them with ribbon to the card! They dangle freely and are not layered on the card so my card still fell into the One Layer Card category! : ) Big, cheesy grin! I was pretty happy with the result! I do think it will be a while before I attempt another One Layer though!

Stamps: SU! Always and Merci
Paper: SU! Sahara Sand
Ink: SU! Pink Passion and Old Olive
Extras: Gold pen, Rose Ribbon, Ice Sparkle Brad, Paper piercer and coluzzle

This is so pretty, Ann Marie! Love the piercing!

One layer cards are the hardest for me to do too! I just wanna embellish too much!

SO gorgeous. What a great idea to paper piece instead of a layer. It looks fabulous. Love the round white card, so fresh! :0)
