Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - One Layer Cards

Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT Card

***********************************

It's my turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, and I have chosen:

'One Layer Cards'
A card where the image is stamped or printed directly on to the card base, with no additional layers, and minimal embellishment.

I've been making quite a lot of one layer cards recently...particularly Christmas ones...in an effort to not have to spend so much on postage! The image I've used on this card is from the 'Hello Friend set by Penny Black, which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I added Glossy Accents to the balloons, for added interest, and the sentiment is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please visit the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. We also have a DT call running until September 30th, so if you fancy joining our happy little team, you can find the linky for that over there too.

And before I go...a reminder that my candy closes at 8pm (BST) tonight...so you'd better be quick if you want to be in with a chance of winning one of the prizes....all the info is on this post.
