Hi Everyone. This week's challenge at DRS Designs is to create a card with no layers. You can see some awesome one layer cards on the blog! Here's the card I created for the challenge.

I started by stamping my butterflies and sentiment in VersaMark ink on the Kraft card base, then I embossed everything with detail white embossing powder. Once it cooled down a bit, I added some color to the images with my Copics. I really like the subtle colors you get when you color on kraft CS. A white ribbon was added to complete the look. A very quick, easy and pretty card!

Hope you'll have some time to join in the fun this week. You could be the lucky winner of some gorgeous DRS Design stamps!!

I also found time to play along with this week's Merry Monday Sketch Challenge. I love getting a head start on my Christmas cards!!

I turned the sketch sideways so my snowflakes and little snowman would fit better. The base is Bashful Blue with a layer of white that was embossed with the CB snowflake folder after stamping the greeting in Bashful Blue ink. The snowman and snowflakes were stamped in Bashful Blue ink, die cut, sponged around the edges with the same blue ink and attached to the card with glue dots. The punched snowflakes were made with a MS punch around the page corner punch. Blue rhinestones were added to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
