Less is More - Week 106 One Layer

Still raining..........and it's freezing cold to boot!!!!  Best excuse for stopping in crafting that I know!

For those of you who follow and join in with the challenges at Less Is More will know that it's a bitter sweet time for Chrissie in that Mandi has decided to step down from the blog to concentrate on her newly set up business.  The good news is that Jen has agreed to stay on as regular designer.  It would be a disaster if the blog were to close so am sure everyone is as pleased as I am that Jen has agreed to stay on and that the two of them will continue to provide their wonderful inspiration for us all.

The new challenge over at Less is More is:

 It's that certain week once more where our challenge is to make a
 One Layer Card
This time we would like you include some reference to
Some people are still a little confused as to just what is allowed in this category, but if you look at our Guidelines at the top of the page it may clarify things a little for you.
Please don't forget that all important 'White Space' !

Had to have a root through my stamps to see what I had that matched the challenge and came up with a Papermania "Urban" stamp set.  Firstly I used a nestie to emboss a rectangle in my cream card and then stamped the music score using DI Frayed Burlap.  The sentiment is a stamp by Anita's and I blanked off the pen nib at the end of the sentiment.  The little bird is part of the Papermania set and I hand drew the branch to ground him to the music score.

Thanks for dropping by.  Happy crafting.
