i think this is first time i have made a one layer card as i am a bit of busy card maker.

i chose to make my card in landscape for a change and felt it suited the layout better. the poppy stamp is a foam stamp from la pashe coloured with prmarkers. the wording is from a set i have had for years can't remember who they were made by. butterflies are from one of my flower fairy sets. hope you like it. i have drawn an embossed line all the way around the card edge but it doesn't show very well on photo.

hope  you like my effort
come and join us as crafty cardmakers and have a go at our challenges

Gill this is gorgeous. Love the design and it just goes to show that you don't need cards dripping with all sorts of embellishments to look really pretty.
