The Naked Card

DSCF7545-1

Oh my, another CAS card!  Well, Susan, the CAS queen, the one-layer wonder woman, the siren of simplicity, has offered up a challenge on her blog, Simplicity:  to make a one-layer, no-embellishment card each Wednesday!  Love it!  But as much as I say I love CAS, to actually do a truly CAS, one-layer, no-embellishment card makes me gulp!  But I needed a sympathy card, so I pulled out Best Wishes & More last night (can you tell I love this set) and a sentiment from Three Little Words and came up with this:

I dug out an old retired SU corner rounder (cuz my other one died) just to give it a little interest......Mellow Moss and Close to Cocoa ink....and I'll put a Bible verse on the inside.   And look......I even used some colored CS as my background (just like SUSAN does!).  Wish I had spaced my leaves a little better, but I hope it will bring some comfort.  TFL!

  1. EEEEEEE!!! I love the overlapping leaves! Did you use two shades of ink or off-stamp for the lighter shade?

    Sorry you needed a sympathy card. Hugs.

  4. Simple and elegant, an unbeatable combination! Your leaves are fine (can't see anything wrong there.) The rounded corners finish it off just right, too.
