Joy & Peace...

Here is my entry for the Simplicity One Layer Challenge this week which is entitled "Heavy Metal" ie, to use something metallic on a one layer card. So I have used an Encore inkpad in metallic gold to stamp this lovely sentiment by Papermania called Silent Night Sentiments.

Z1

The rectangle was very easy to draw...I just laid a rectangular Nestie over my sentiment and drew round it...perfect! And of course, the obligatory three snowflakes...am I becoming a bit predictable lol?

I really didn't think I was going to make anything this week...I don't want this to become a blog about my ailments, but my health is not at all good at the moment so I'm just doing what I can when I can. This was a nice quick card to make, which is just about all I have energy for at the moment. I hope to be back with you very soon.

Elegant simplicity Sarita. The sentiment is beautiful, and drawing a fine border around it takes it to another level. The three stamped snowflakes are a perfect addition. Absolutely stunning!
