lawnscaping challenge - one layer...wonderful!

well, it's monday...and a BRAND NEW month, to boot!
and what makes this day even MORE's a new Lawnscaping Challenge

this time, it's all about...the dreaded...the feared...the impossible...ONE LAYER CARD!

ok, maybe that just describes MY feelings toward one layer cards - essecially, they TERRIFY me! lol! i LOVE looking at other people create one layer cards...but me? oh no. i just can NOT execute! lol!

alas, i do have a card to share:

i used the NEW joy to the woods stamp set from lawn fawn! ACK - this new release, LOVING it all!! :) ha ha!
ok, back to the card, i stamped the tiny, funky diamonds in a rainbow of distress inks and then filled in the color VERY carefully by using the ink pads, some water and watercoloring the color in. 

the sentiment - that was FUN! i used the scripty hello die to create a 'mask' or stencil, of the word 'hello'. then i squished my versamark ink pad on top and sprinkled some lovely silver embossing powder on top! isn't that fun?! yep, i liked how it turned out!

so that's my one layer card! my fingers literally STILL ITCH to add more...wood veneers, enamel dots, sequins, SOMETHING to add some dimension to the card - help! lol!

ok, so now it's your turn! :) i really hope you join in on the fun with this challenge!!
