The Paper Players Challenge #179

Today I am sharing the card I created for the The Paper Players Challenge.

This was a challenge where we had to create a one layer only Valentine card.

I found it so hard sticking to just the one layer, somehow just doesn't seem enough.

I started with a base card of white and then just basically stamped the hearts from the Hearts a Flutter stamp set in the colours of Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.

It seemed a little too plain to me so I added in some light stamping of some stamps from Gorgeous Grunge - my favourite stamps for creating backgrounds.

What do you all think?  Do you like Clean and Simple with only one layer, or are you a layers girl.  I can definitely say, I like my layers.

It was a very quick and easy card to put together once I decided on which stamps and colours I wanted to use and it would be easy to create many different cards just by changing the colours.
