Single Layer Stamped Card

Hello Again my Friends!
Yep ... I have a second post to share with you today!
I don't do that often but I had a little time to play and wanted to create in a style that I 'RARELY' do ... that is Single Layer cards.  I don't know why I don't do more cards of this style ... guess I just love the look of the layers with ribbons, die cuts, flowers ... well you get my drift!! LOL

Okay ... here we go!

The challenge over on Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog was my inspiration today.  Their theme is SINGLE LAYER with some beautiful samples for inspiration and I just had to give it a whirl.
My mojo has been lacking lately so I was hoping this would help ... and it has!

A peek at the inside ...
I've used the very old Stampin' Up set of stamps called 'Toile Blossom' for my design and colored them in with Prisma Pencils (something else I haven't used in quite some time).  The sentiment is by Verses Inc and I chose Kraft card stock since I think it's perfect for a sympathy card ... more subtle.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
As always . . .

I still have this set, too. Your Prismas on kraft are awesome! Wow! You're good with them. You should maybe use them more. This is so beautiful, Darlene, and absolutely perfect for a sympathy card. The sentiment is just lovely. And one layer? I'm totally inspired!
