The Flower Challenge #23 - One Layer Card


Well, my poor blog has been neglected of late. Unfortunately, life has thrown quite a few things at me recently, but hopefully things are gradually improving now.
Our new challenge this month over at The Flower Challenge is to make one layer card(s). Never the easiest of challenges, but my teamies have created some great inspiration for you.
I made a super simple card for the challenge using Taylored Expressions Bloomin' Background stamp. I simply stamped it onto my card bank on black archival ink and then stamped the sentiment (possibly from a Winnie & Walter set - but can't find it again to tell you) and that was the card ready for colouring with my zigs. The background stamp is 4.5" x 5.75" so I stamped on a 6"x 6" card base and then trimmed it down a little. See, one layer cards are nothing to be scared of! 
I hope you all have a fab weekend and manage to get some crafting done, hopefully involving a floral theme on one layer!
