A One Layer Card...

...is so hard to do when you're used layers....matting...ribbon and bling...but a challenge is always good, so here's my shot at it.

And as you can see...I couldn't stop myself from adding just a touch of ribbon...I know...but it's a huge step in the right direction. 

I'm playing along with CAS-ual Friday challenge (feathered friends) and Less is More (One layer card using 3 stamps).



I started out by using my Ancient Page (Lime) ink pad and plopping it right on the card base. The bird stamp is from Stampin Up!, the miss you and heart are from Studio G..  I used Twinkling H2O's to color the bird, flower and heart.  And my rogue ribbon is from Offray.

Thanks for dropping by today...Ivanka

I like the technical term - plopped ink pad - that is a great shape - have to see if I have any to try that with. Love the card.

glad to see you creating

This is really gorgeous. The shape of the 'plopped' ink pad adds a really interesting background. It's colourful and vibrant. And the ribbon is great!
