Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

One Layer at STB!


Hello Friends, How is the weather where you are?  We are having quite a blast of cold air here in the Sunshine State with a low of 33 this morning and let’s just say I am not a huge fan.  I live in Florida for a reason! LOL  Anyways, we shall be back in the 70’s by the end of the weekend so all is good and I get to wear my boots too, so I ought to stop complaining! Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping we have starting is to make a One Layer Card.  I don’t do many of these types of cards and I wouldn’t say I am very good at them, but as they say, you just have to keep on trying. Today’s card was made with the Altenew stamp set called Botanical Garden. I water colored it and added some splatters when I was done.  I used the most intricate brush I had for the stems of the flowers.  That was my best part…LOL.

I am also going to be linking up over at CAS Watercolour where the challenge is Birthday. Hope to see you over in the Seize the Birthday Gallery and have a fabulous day!  Nanc’
