A few weeks ago over at My Unity Place, they had a challenge to make a single layer card. And what a challenge that was for me---I think I can count on one hand the number of times I've made a single layer card. It actually probably took me longer to THINK about how to make one than if I had made a dozen of my "normal" style cards LOL!
So, here's what I came up with. The bird image from the May 2011 Kit of the Month sort of reminded me of a Halloween crow so I went with it. I just stamped the sentiment (from the September 2010 KOTM) and bird image onto a piece of Halloween themed paper, inked the edges and added a bow. I have to admit I did cheat a little wee bit and add a strip of striped paper and a scallop across the card. I was planning on just adding some ribbon but it just didn't quite go so I did opt to add the strips to complete the design. *Phew* that was a hard one LOL!
Be sure to stop by the Unity blog today for Friends with Flair Friday. Have a great weekend!
