The Greeting Farm "One Layer" Challenge Contest

Hey Friends!! The Greeting Farm has a new challenge! This week's it's a "one layer" challenge!! Here are the details:

Rules: Ok simple rules here: No Layering! Basically looking for just one card stock, folded. But you may use ribbons and embellishments. If you find this extremely impossible, I will allow you to do one layer if you decide to paper piece. But that's it! Please post your entry in the Galleria under Contests/Challenges/No Layers.

Deadline: Wednesday, June 17th

Prize: Your choice of 3 stamp sets!

Oh my. . .3 stamp sets! You better play along because 3 stamp sets is the BOMB!!

You're like . . .your card is not one layer! It is. . .my card base is a double sided designer paper. Because you're able to use embellishments . . .I used all the flowers to create the lei around my "Sing" image. There's no "layering" otherwise. You're allowed to paper piece. . .I actually paper pieced the "Sing" image to the designer paper rather than paper piecing the designer paper on to the image so my card do "qualify" as a one layer card. LOL!!

Hey. . .this evening my daughter graduates from high school! Oh my gosh. . .how exciting! I'm going to have a busy day. . .I need to take photos of my daughter before she heads to the school. I'll take a whole bunch and I'll post them tomorrow.


Anyway. . .hope you'll play along in the Greeting Farm "One Layer" challenge!! Can't wait to see your card!! Stop by the Greeting Farm blog and check out the other cards created by the DT.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Stamps: The Greeting Farm "Sing"
