AAA Cards ... One Layer

Whoosh ... that's January gone!  Who knew a month could pass so quickly! I hope you've had a good start to the year and that your New Year's resolutions are going well!

It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards ... this time the theme and twist is:

As always we are looking for CAS (Clean and Simple) cards based on the theme.

I've created a one layer card reflecting the optional twist of love.

I masked the heart area and then stamped and heat embossed the floral images before using distress inks to water colour the images.  I added the sentiment and a light 'shadow' around the heart, chomped the corners and that is it ... finished.

I used:
Sizzix Nesting Heart dies
STAMPlorations -Bloom Doodles Stamp set
Distress Inks - Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Peeled Paint, Tumbled glass.

I hope you will be inspired to join in with the challenge - whether you twist or not, remember keep it CAS!
