A {single layer} Inkspiration Colour Challenge

Happy Friday!!!! It's time for another Inkspiration Challenge and this week it's a COLOUR challenge!!!

I was having a little looksie at some Blogs the other day and to my absolute GLEE (oh yes and that's starting again... yay) ok back on track.... Kristina Werner had a CHALLENGE up on her blog... wooo hooo... I LOVED playing along with her challenges too. Soooo, why all this waffle.. well... given I've got a CRAZY weekend I needed a REALLY quick and simple card for my Inkspiration Challenge this week.. and that's where Kristina's extra challenge helped... her challenge to create a 'Single Layer' card... I know... me.. who loves a couple of layers on my cards... so be warned.. this is a VERY CAS card.. but I kinda like it.

Keesh's colours this week were heaps of fun too... Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive and Whisper White!!! NICE!!!!

Here's my card:-

And here are the fabulous colours from Keesh:-

I punched out a Scallop Circle onto a Post-It Note then placed it onto my cardstock to create a stencil. Then I sponged some Bashful Blue Ink to created my {single layer} scallop circle. Then I inked up one of MY FAVES.. the little flower from Cheep Talk in Real Red and Old Olive and added a little bit of BLING in the form of some Dazzling Diamonds.. to keep with the whole simple and single layer challenge. hahaha.

The sentiment is from Basic Phrases and is stamped in Bashful Blue.
Oh and in an attempt to not completely freak everyone out with all that "WHITE" space.. which can indeed be a little intimidating I scored a little frame around the outside edge, that way the whole card has it's own little "single layer" frame.

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Inkspiration DT for some AMAZING inspiration:-

Simple and yet sooooo gorgeous! The score line adds a great frame to the single layer.
