Quick One Layer Card

I made time to play with the 90 Minute Scramble with the Hero Arts Flickr group this morning. The challenge was to make a one layer card...oh, that is a challenge for me. I love having the flexibility of layering to cover up my many boo-boos. So keeping to my M.O. the first card found its way to the wastebasket, just too many smudges and a crooked sentiment. Here is card #2...I went a totally different direction than the first card.....
I did some acrylic block stamping for the background, added some snowflakes and then stamped the Decorated Tree and sentiment. The tree is colored with run of the mill Sharpie markers.
I'm off to find some inspiration...I'm fresh out at the moment!

 ~ Romans 15:13 ~
"I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. 
Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit."

blessings,

I think your one layer card is beautiful, Nancy! Your lovely stamping gives the illusion of being multi-layered. I love the colored ornaments and the pretty bling. I also appreciate your wonderful "Thought for the Day". Thank you!...Nancy :o)
