OLW128 - Feminine Birthday
This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Heather. The challenge is to make a feminine birthday card.
Heather advised us to use our favourite things - she sponged and masked, and I went for graphic shapes and bold colours.

I created this half-circle stamp by cutting a large clear stamp in half. I do this all the time - to me, that's one of the great things about clear stamps. I admit that mostly, I cut sentiments (and I try to cut them in such a way that they become like a puzzle and will fit together again in their original form), but I had a craving for a half-circle, and I just didn't have one. I did however, have a couple of circles this size, so I thought I would go for it. I cut it with a large pair of scissors, to try to keep the line as straight as possible. You would think that this should result in two half-circle stamps, but it didn't. At least I got one!
I simply added my new Verve sentiment and left it at that.
