One Layer Wednesday

I'm thrilled that I finally have a chance to play along with Susan Raihala's One Layer Wednesday Challenge!  I love these challenges and have wanted to participate for soooo long.  One layer cards are some of my favorite to make.  Here are the rules for this week, OLW39:

Use a) an image, b) a border stamp (or stamped border if you're short of border stamps), and c) bling (glitter or rhinestones...doesn't matter). You may add small CAS embellishments to this list (embossing, ribbon, twine, or a charm, for instance), but you may NOT use a sentiment stamp or cardstock layers.



Here is a close up of the bling.  I colored clear rhinestones with a Copic BG13 marker.  As you can see, it was hard to capture them in the photo.

My color inspiration for this card came from a color challenge blog that I just discovered, CR84FN.  I'm sure many of you are already familiar with them.   I couldn't resist the fun color combo for this week's challenge, CR84FN13.  Isn't is wonderful?


Can't believe I posted a card two days in a row!  Most weeks I'm doing good if I get one card made total.  I guess these snow days are good for something.  Of course, the girls are loving it too.  Will they be this happy when they have all the make-up days in June?




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  Asian Fusion
Paper:  Stampers Select White
Ink:  Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate, Breeze (CTMH)
Accessories:  clear rhinestones (paper studio), Copic BG13, red glitter gelly roll pen (sakura)
