One Layer Wednesday - Boot Camp!!

It's Wednesday - Do you know what that means???  One Layer Wednesday Challenge!  This week's challenge is being hosted by Jennifer Styles (Styles Ink) and is titled - Boot Camp. 
"Make a card using ONLY ONE image stamp and a maximum of two ink colours. You may use the same image repeatedly, but you may only use the one image. You may also use one sentiment stamp if you choose. Oh, and no embellishments. None. Nada."
My stamp (Flutterby Flock) and sentiment are from the Everything's Rosy Collection from A Muse and were inked with Fresh Ink (Steel Blue and Basil).
If you look really closely you can see that the card is made from white Shimmer cardstock (SU!) - Adds a teeny bit of sparkle on a very CAS card!  In all reality it is a bit too CAS for me - I'd probably add a bit of white ribbon at the top if I were to mail it.

The shimmer paper is a great idea. I think your design is perfect for a set of notecards to give as a gift. Use different sentiments, happy birthday, thinking of you ie. and you're good to go.

Thanks for sharing.

Ooooo! Love that stamp!! The colors you chose are awesome too! I bet in real life that shimmery paper really looks good. Love how you've rounded the opposite corners...I never remember to do that and I love the look!

Really lovely card - I like how you've picked out one butterfly in a different colour. The shimmer is a good idea too. Fab!

Beautiful! Love how you singled out one butterfly to be a different color. I really should've read the challenge more carefully... I was thinking one image, one color, one sentiment, another color. Oh, well. I was happy with what I came up with, but yours is really stunning!

Oh, oh, oh!

This is absolutely gorgeous! My favourite colours too!

Now, I must ask myself, why do I not own the butterfly stamp? And I just received an A Muse order too.

Obviously my ordering skills are a little rusty. Will have to keep practising. Heh.

Thanks for playing along with OLW34!
