Hi there! this is Simplicity OLW20

Hello everyone, hope all's well in your neck of the woods?
Playing in my craft space today, I was having loads of fun, well that's not strictly true but I was enjoying myself. We've been challenged by SusanRaihala  at Simplicity again, this is what she said.................

OLW20 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.

2. Make a card that has three images and one sentiment. You may use three coordinating images, as I (Susan) did here, or repeat one image three times. Just keep it to three images. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.



Ah ha!, I thought to myself, that'll be easy, Oh boy! I can be so wrong :0) 
Well most of the day has gone and I've been huffing and puffing and stamping and masking and stamping,  this is the last effort. 
I think it may be that the design had to have 4 elements and that meant it was an even number and I've just struggled to get something I was happy with. I know, what a woos, he! he! he!  there, I've said it again :0) xx


My favourite stamp today is this young lady from Suzi Blu and Unity
The sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo Kid Quotes 
I masked and stamped the skirt with a border stamp from Denami
She has glittery Star Dust stickles on her flowers


I hope you all have a lovely day, I'm off to clear up again :0) xx

Single layer cards are really difficult - there's no margin for error and they are really unforgiving! Looks to me like you pulled this one of beautifully!!!! I love that little girl image, and your colouring and masking are fab! Jo x

This is soooo pretty! I love how you varigated (sp?) the colors on the girl. So soft and gentle. Really like both the image and the sentiment.

I keep seeing these Suzi Blu images everywhere and you've made me want one or two! They are so sweet and I love what you did with yours. She's beautiful in rainbow inks and that sentiment is perfect!! This is a perfect pick-me-up card for anyone.
