Papertrey Princess Challenge 3 - One Layer Card

The hubster is still up fixing the Linux server so I'm staying up too as a means of solidarity... so here I am!

Yeah, yeah... I'm totally late again for the challenge! This time we were challenged to make a one layer card -- no one ever said pearls or ribbon were considered layers... ;-)

Ok, so onto the deets of this card. I'm not a one layered card person at all. Looking back in my archives I think I've only done like one other one layered card. What can I say? I love my layers! So this was a challenge for me.

I really wanted to get some depth into the card so I added the sponging to the embossed nestability frame. Its as if there are imaginary layers. ;-) And of course, the ribbon helps to add some dimension as well.

Seriously guys, can you have a card without ribbon? ;-) Maybe that should be the next challenge... hah, I'd prolly totally fail that one.

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms, Friends Til the End
Paper: White
Ink: Dark Chocolate, Chalk ink
Ribbon: Dark Chocolate twill and Sweet Blush Grosgrain
Other: Pearls (Hero Arts), Nestabilities (Label 4, i think?)
