Well today is the last day of the DD challenges, it has been fun but it has also been lots of work trying to get through as many challenges as I could. Of course I haven't finished just yet as there are still a couple of challenges I want to get done .... one I mightn't get done today .... so I might try that one tomorrow.
The challenge for these two cards here were for Julie's "Single Layer" challenge and if we wanted to do a little extra we could also include window which I did for the Olive a party card above. As Julie is known for her love of Appletinis, I thought this one was appropriate for her challenge ;) And this week has been a little like a party, well almost! The ribbon was originally white and I colored it using my alcohol markers.
I also had to have a tiny play with my new garden whimsy set (my watermark is fading out the stems of the flowers on the right. It has been a long time since I have done single layers, way back when when I started stamping about 20 years ago that would be mostly what we did, layering came later ....... I think I would be happier with this one if it was layered onto a couple of other colors but ....... I can't do that for this challenge ;)
