Simply Squigglefly!

Here's a simple single layer card or even a NO LAYER card! Pretty easy peasy but effective! The #9 Squigglefly Challenge is up and calls for a no layer card with one embellishment!
I used this rose image from the Tribal Flourish Set from Squigglefly!
After printing the rose (1 of 9 images), I cut an oval shape from some cs and used the negative to create a stencil/mask. I masked the rose also and used pastels to color inside the oval. Then use Prisma markers to color the rose. Stamp a sentiment, tie a ribbon and tah dah. A lovely thank you card!

This was a great challenge for a Monday, especially a Monday after a festive weekend. I'm still recovering from fun, friends, food and fireworks! Hope everyone had a good weekend also! Only two other challenges for this one, My Time to Craft~no patterned papers and Creative Inspiration~masking! Yea, I know, I'll do better tomorrow! lol
Oh, there's one more thing...

Gorgeous card Maria - I love your stenciled oval and the 'simple' style (which are usually the hardest styles!)

Holly Young said...

Wow maria, this really looks great! I think the way you did the oval is genius because you fake a layer that way!
