No Layers Challenge!

If you regularly visit my blog, you will know that I like a lot of "stuff" on my cards! Layers, layers, layers, embellishments, embellishments, embellishments! So when given the challenge in the Crafty Secret's Forum at SCS, to create a card with only ONE layer..........I thought....IMPOSSIBLE! ME?! But I like a challenge as much as the next gal.....so I created this.

I used my Nesties to emboss the square around the image for a bit of depth. The image is by Crafty Secret's and is called, The Story of Me. It was colored using Prismas and Gamsol. I did distress the edges and round the corners. The ribbon is by Papertrey Ink.


I was pretty pleased with the results.....if I do say so myself!
Hoping all of you have a wonderful Wednesday!
