Cupcake Crafts Challenge 35 – One layer!!

Afternoon everyone – hope you’re all having a wonderful bank holiday. We have arrived back from our jollies in Angelsey after a fabulous weekend in the sun. We were so lucky with the weather I have to say and were even able to get the kids down to the beach a couple of times.
I have just popped on to upload my card for our challenge this week over at Cupcake Crafts. It’s another toughie this week from our Lauren – make a card with just one layer!! This isn’t QUITE as hard as it first sounds because the “one layer” refers to one layer of card/patterned paper NOT including your base card or image (if using). You can use as many other embellies as you like. So not SO bad!! I don’t know if I might be ever so slightly pushing the boundaries with my example! The base card is MM cosmopolitan range (I think) and is a DS cardstock. Over that I’ve layered a paisley pattern from the same range and edged with ribbon. The flowers are from Joanna Sheen – great value!! Ok, so there is my one layer! However, I did stamp my Gorjuss girl onto another piece of the same card as the base card and then paper pieced her on to that. Is this another layer?? I hope not – that would be cheating!!
Anyhoo, hope you can pop over and join in with this weeks challenge – it gets you thinking!! The other DT’s samples are GORGEOUS and again, so varied. Next week it’s my first chance to set the challenge so I have to get the old brain churning and see if I can conjure up something to get you all thinking again!! Hmmmmm……..
