This card was done in response to a challenge issued by Julie HRR on her blog--a one layer card. I stamped the Delight in Life Flowers directly onto the card front using paper copies to mask where necessary. For the outside rounded-cornered square, I used the negative shape of a Cricut cut to lightly pencil in borders and watercolored from the outer edge of my borders toward the inside images. (I usually do that just the opposite, softening the outer edge and bleeding out to clean paper there, but I decided that I needed a hard boundary for my image so that I could emphasize the shapes that broke the square.) Finally, when I couldn't get my ribbon to suit me, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the type where I had intended to put the ribbon. Thanks for issuing a challenge, Julie! Square Fabriano notecards are from StarLitStudio's e-Bay store.
