One Layer Card

Good Morning, my friends.  Happy Friday.  It is a LONG weekend here in Canada and I am looking forward to spending some relaxing time.  No real plans, just gonna play it by ear ~ take our "new-to-us" car and drive.  See how she rolls.  Since it is 11 years old already I am sure it won't roll like a race car but will get us places ~ and apparently, that is the main thing.....

The challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps this week was to make a one layer card ~ yes, my friends, you heard that correct ~ a one layer card.  Ummmmm, I don't think I have made a one layer card since I used to make cards as a kid out of construction paper.  So I took up the challenge.  I had a new set of Kraftin' Kimmie stamps that I had purchased at Scrapfest and not inked yet so I used one of them:

And a close up of the image:


Card stock ~ Copic Xpress It
Image & Sentiment ~ Kraftin' Kimmie "Going Places"
Memento Black Ink
Copic Markers
Martha Stewart scoreboard
Glossy Accents
Button and twine from "Use it Up" Inventory

I like the clean and simple look of this card and am going to make matching ones with the other two images from the stamp set. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps ~ a one layer card
Whimsy Stamps ~ Anything goes
Crafting for All Seasons ~ Celebration and Buttons
Inspire Me Fridays ~ Anything goes

Thanks all for dropping by today.  I would love to know you were here so please leave me a comment so I can come visit you as well.  Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
