OLW 76 - Colour in Winter

Today's OLW challenge at Simplicity ( is to make a card with a 'gallon' of grey, a 'quart' of white and an ounce of colour. Once again, as I was working on the 4th version of my first card (some cards just do not want to be made!), an idea for a completely different card came to me. So here they are, in order:

I have to admit that one-layer cards are not my strength. I always feel that they need a 'frame' of colour and so these may end up being 're-purposed' onto coloured card bases.


Stamps: Impression Obsession, Stampin' Up!, Papertrey Ink
Paper: Gina K Pure Luxury 120 lb
Ink: Memento London Fog, Melon Mambo, Summer Sunrise and Only Orange

I was totally waiting for your response to this challenge and I am not disappointed! I really like the one with the pink flower in the centre - I think the business of the tiny flowers (with stickles!) gives the card some depth, which is helpful in the one-layer card. Nicely done!

I know what you mean about sometimes feeling the cards are unfinished. My first card wasn't actually one layer... and I felt that was cheating to use it!

Don't change anything - I think these are super! I love the first card and the second has a lovely graphic feel!

I wouldn't change a thing! Both cards are great! I think perhaps the first one is my favorite!

I love both cards...the lacy feel of the first and the graphic feel of the second! ;)
