GUEST DT SPOT! Lawnscaping Challenge #39 - One Layer

Helloooo!!!  Boy am I excited for this Lawnscaping Challenge to begin!  I've waited to share this wonderful opportunity with all of you for weeks now!!  I was asked by the wonderful Laurel, and the other DT members at Lawnscaping to be a Guest Designer for this challenge!  What a challenge it is!  One Layer!!  First, before I go any further - let me also say that this challenge is sponsored by the fantabulous ( is that a word - it is now) Simon Says Stamp!!  My favorite online store for sure!!

For my card - I took LF stamp sets Blissful Botanicals and Flutter By and created a floral fusion!!  I did some masking on this card because I knew going in, that of course I wanted to create the illusion of dimension, but keeping with the one layer theme!!  I used some Distress Inks in "Mowed Lawn", "Picked Raspberry", "Peacock Feathers", and "Squeezed Lemonade".  I colored with my blender pen and used these colors to bring some life into my flowers.

I created a bright pink scalloped border for the end of my card to break up between my card base, and stamped panel.   I am proud of the way this card turned out!!!  Actually, it is the first time I have inked up both LF stamp sets!!  Thought it would be a VERY good time to break them in!!  

What an honor this is for me!!  Thanks again to Laurel and the Lawnscaping family for this opportunity!!  I will never forget it!!  

OK- now its your turn!!  What kind of ONE LAYER magic will you make!!  Get your stamps, ink and creativity ready!!  Most of all- have fun!!
