One card ..... two challenges

Happy Wednesday ......

Middle of the week already.
Just a quick post today as I'm off out later ..... the sun is shining and I'm meeting up with the girls in Ramsey for lunch.

Before I go, I want to play along with the latest Less is More Challenge

It's One Layer Week .... whoo hoo!! and the challenge is to use a coloured card base.  Not something I do very often but I think this fits the bill perfectly ......

Definitely not white .... and only one layer.  It was hubby's birthday card.

The wine bottle image was stamped using Crimson Red versafine ink .... I think the stamp is an old Inkadinkadoo one 

And then the sentiment (from Penny Black's T for Transparent set ..... Birthday Love) stamped over the the top in black

I added the Happy Birthday to the bottom .... stamping in the red ink first, then in black over the top but slightly offset to give a shadow look

It's a bit different over at LIM this week with the challenge running for 2 weeks ..... so no excuse not to enter.   AND ...... they're also joining forces for this challenge with the AAA CAS Card Challenge .... so I'll be playing along there too!

I must dash, I'm still in my PJ's ..... can't go out for lunch like that now can I!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day.

Cheerio until next time .....
