From little acorns grow

Good evening, sorry I'm a bit late today, I've been having a bit of a tidy up in my craft room and you know what it's like - half way through you think 'why did I ever start this'!

You must pop over to The Crafty Pad Designs Shop, Debbie has been very busy and there are lots of new goodies there - new images (including some gorgeous Christmas ones), papers and sentiments.  This is a card I have made using some of the new images:

Top Tip Tuesday have a 'One Layer Card' challenge at the moment and as this is something I have never tried before I just had to have a go.  I have used two of the images from the new 'Acorns and Autumn Leaves' set, watch this space for the leaves - I have a plan!

I printed the images and verse onto some Elegance Satin card stock and coloured them using my FlexMarkers.

I just put a very plain insert into this card with a smaller version of the image:

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

LEJ Designs Challenge 16 - Clean and Simple
Robyn's Fetish Challenge 120 - Monochromatic Cards
Sparkles Monthly Challenge 35 - Nature
