Almost A One Layered Wonder...Maybe?



Do you think this card will count as a one layered wonder if I tell you that it is really a one layered card hiding beneath the two thoroughly glued down slopey hills?  Didn't thinks so.  Hehe.  I was trying my darnedest to do a one layered card but when the thought of those darling wee gingham and graph paper hills came to mind it was stuck there and wasn't gonna budge until I crafted them.  D'oh!

This card was crafted with Papertrey Ink goodies from across the years.  I must say, it is rather satisfying to create using some older items, and still feel they are rather current (albeit it possibly so, only within my own lunchbox).  I am entering this card into Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge.  I am fairly certain it has been well over a year, if not more, since I participated in one... so I thought why not?  The challenge was to create using glitter detail.  Although, I am not a stranger to glitter, I don't use it too, too often, but enjoy it when I do.  I used some Prisma Glitter across the wire the birds have precariously perched upon and a few squirts on the petals of the flower at the base of the one tree.  C'est Tout.

Thanks a big bunch for stopping by.  Here's to a love-filled day for us all!

This is a very sweet card. I think it was brilliant to put the glitter on the birds' perch line. And, given where you are coming from, I'd say that this is about as close to one layer as I have ever seen from you, so I'm giving you one-layer credit!

Oh! I absolutely adore this card! Such loveliness and sweetness in this scene. And I'd still consider it a one layer card ;) Are those hills from In the Meadow dies? Those pesky things are trying to get me to buy them! Fabulous card:)

What a darling card. So different from your usual style. Love the touch of glitter. i SAY IT COUNTS AS A ONE LAYER.

One of the most unique uses of selective glitter I've seen this morning - LOVE the birds on a glitter wire. For the record, I also love the designer paper hills - they really do complete the card!
