One layer Simplicity new challenge :D

OOh happy day :D Two posts in one day, I must be loosing it :D (Yeah I know you know that already, no need to titter ) LOL
Anyway, One Layer Wednesday has been revamped and has now become One-Layer Simplicity just in case you weren't aware, I have been out of the loop for a while and have missed lots!!
This time it's Heather's turn to host and she challenged us to

 Make a card which features something repeated. It could be an image or a sentiment. Just remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

 This card uses Chocolate Baroque's new stamps 'Mackintosh Windows' and a Printworks sentiment that is very old called 'Great Birthday'
I stamped and then added some sponged ( distress ink  'Peacock Feathers' ) circles through a stencil, with Sakura gel pen highlights DONE !! Loads of fun!!!

And so I made another
Same stamps but the double stamped 'Happy' qualifies for repeated stamping methinks.
More gel glitter for the pods, not sure you can see but it's there.
It's so good to be back stamping and sharing again especially with this great revamped challenge to compete in. Thank you so much Susan and the rest of the team :D Have a great day, Gay x

I love both of these, Gay. The black line art is very funky and the subtle background behind the roses is beautiful.
