Dandelion Dreams

I can't believe it, I've actually managed to make a card for the Less is More challenge this week.  It's One Layer week and the theme is Shadow Stamping, I really struggle with one layer cards, I always feel the need to add a base layer!


I have used the Dandelion Dreams stamp from Clearly Besotted and Seedless Preserves Distress Ink, the sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I so wanted to add some sequins and a coloured base layer but I resisted - watch this space!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 167 - One Layer with Shadow Stamping
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Clean and Simple
Artistic Inspirations Challenge 87 - Monochrome
DRS Designs Challenge 117 - Pop Goes 1 Colour
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 126 - CAS

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in. I have some candy on offer until 20th April, make sure your take a look HERE.

It is a very clean and elegant card. It really needed to be just one layer and simple. I'm with you though, one layer seems so naked!
