One Layer - Round & Round

During the past 10 weeks I have been hosting cook-outs for birthday parties, guests from France, holidays or family get together's along with a few day trips. This week for the first time since June 17 there is nothing "planned".... that is, of course, NOT etched in stone. A cook-out could erupt on any day, at any hour, for any reason.

I finally had a few minutes to visit my Butterfly Garden and was able to make this card for two challenges. The Paper Players challenge hosted by Ann is to create a "one layer card", the challenge at Less is More is "round and round", therefore this card is for both challenges.

The Flourishes stamp was colored with Prisma colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. Cuttlebug supplied the embossing folder.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden. I hope, I hope, I hope :-)

HELLO Marie!!!!! I've MISSED you my sweet friend. Sounds like you are having a very social summer there girl, but it all sounds great!

Your card is simply delightful and perfectly colored!! I really need to pick up some Gamsol. I've been using colored pencils more often and I love this look! Great job, nice to have you back ;)

Glad to see you back creating, Marie!!
This is beautiful! One layer cards are hard! The embossed line between the image and sentiment is great!!
