Simplicity's OLW19, A spot of colour.

Hello again, 
ooh! it's a dull, dark, dank, day here at coffee headquarters, I think it's going to pour down any minute, I hope it's better where you are!
Susan over the pond at Simplicity has thrown down the gauntlet and challenged us again, Yay!! 


Rules for OLW19

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

2. Make a card that is mostly black and white with just a spot of color. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

I had a lot of fun doing this one, the dragon has been languishing in one of my boxes for a long time, it's so lovely to be able to bring him/her out. The sentiment had to be masked it was 'Have you ever had one of those days?', much too long for my card but it makes me smile:) I have a few of 'those days' myself:)

Dragon stamp by Funstamps  that I found over at Cheddar Stamper.
Sentiment from Stamps by Judith. Just click on the link to be transported over to the store:) 

Wishing you all a lovely day, I'm starved, lunch beckons, Bye:)
