Kraftin' Kimmie - it's time for a new challenge!

Good morning everyone! Hope you're having a magnificent start to your Saturday!! I'm a little late in getting my post up this morning, so I apologize for that! It's time for a new challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog, and this week our hostess with the mostest is the fabulous and awesomely talented Alice!! Alice makes the most amazing cards, and she has challenged us to a....are you ready????....a ONE LAYER CARD. Yup...you heard (or rather read) me correctly. LOL! A one layer card. Well anyone that has ever received (or maybe even weighed) one of my cards, knows how much of a challenge this was for me. But hey...isn't that what challenges are for? To stretch us out of our comfort zone? So I grabbed my cardstock and set out to do exactly that.  And this is what I came up with.


I used the new "Going Places" stamp set for my card. It's stamped with Memento ink directly onto my card base and then colored with Copic markers. I then stamped the sentiment up in the left hand corner.

Don't forget to check out Kimmie's Frugal Friday specials where she has six fabulous images at 40 to 50% off the regular price!!! So that's it for me today. Please be sure and pop over to Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog to check out what my teamies have come up with for your viewing pleasure. And then we'd really love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope you have a fantastic weekend! See you soon! Hugs!

Great job on the one-layer challenge! I don't do as many layers as some but this would be a tough challenge for me. I do like all the white space though because it really makes your image pop. Fabulous colouring too.
