One layer ...

Good morning ...  the sun is shining and the sky is blue ... everything looks promising for a nice day. 

Yesterday I was inspired to create a couple of one layer cards but ran out of time to blog about both of them ... so here is the second card:

This proved to be a difficult design to photograph ... I stamped the card across the middle with a variety of flowers and leaves and then die cut 'Mum' out and then adhered the letters through the holes onto the inside of the card ... so when the card is closed the word is hidden.  I hope this makes sense!!

I used:
Distress Inks - Peeled Paint, Twisted Citron, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries and Dried Marigold.
Versafine Onyx Black
For the Love of Stamps - Floribunda
Simon Says Stamp - Sketch Ranunculus and Lots of Dots
Visible Image - Go To Words
Cardio Majestix - Sweet Birdhouse and Gerbera Garden
Dienamics Alpha Dies

I'm going to enter the following challenges:

AAA  Cards #157 - without the optional twist
