Used CS that I taped off with removable tape then masked the areas and used a brush to put a little color in each square. Covering each area I then took an old floral stamp and stamped in each area....a one layer simple card!!

Keep It Simple Sister
What a great devotional this week over at Stampin Sisters in Christ....Heb 13:5. Patti J challenged us to be satisfied with what we have because He will not forsake us. Her stamping challenge was to Keep It Simple Sister - a one layer card. You would think it would be easy to keep it simple, but I really had to think about it. How could I create a one layer card without my dies, and DP - oh my.....then so many thoughts began to swirl around.....all leading to technique upon technique that required, step after step.......I was not feeling the simple. Then I remembered a style of card I had done years ago and thought why not tape and stamp. No fancy words or bows or embellishments - just one layer all on its own. Truly a 'Just Because' card to be sent with words of encouragement written on the inside......Thank you Patti - this challenge and the devotional have helped me remain a little more focused in the present this week and grateful.
