One color card

Hello blog friends!
I hope your weekend is going well.
Mine is so far, beautiful weather, not too hot, not too cool.
And tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful too.
I hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer!

Today I have a card that I made for a challenge on one of my favorite blogs,
Each month Enfys posts a challenge, now I'm not good about doing challenges, but I have participated in a couple of hers.
This month the challenge was to make a card using one color.
For my card I used 4 different stamps
"Heart Background" (#57901)
"Baroque Background" (#57701)
"Celtic Background" (#31601)
"Happy Birthday" (#36314)
I stamped all 3 background images onto
kraft cardstock with Versamark ink.
I used the Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies to cut the outer 2 pieces.
I scored them with my Score Buddy and attached them to the inside panel that I had trimmed down with my paper trimmer.
Then adhered it to a piece of white cardstock.

I stamped the "Happy Birthday" sentiment onto separate pieces of cardstock and trimmed them into banner shapes and adhered them inside the card.
To close the card I punched 2 hearts from the left over pieces stamped with the Heart Background, glued them to white cardstock and fussy cut them. I used foam tape to adhere them to the card.  On the right side I first glued down the floss with Glossy Accents, before adding the heart over it. 

I'm pleased with the way this card turned out.  I wasn't too sure about it when I started out with all the brown, but I think it turned out very cute.  I might just send it to my Aunt Marilyn for her birthday in September as her favorite color is brown.  I think she'll love it!

Thanks for stopping by today, leave a comment if you will
and come again soon.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
