One-Layer Wednesday #49

I was having a "I need chocolate" moment today so I caved in and ate the chocolate wand that my cousins got me from the Harry Potter amusement park. Word on the street is that a CVS is being built near my office. I will have to exercise restraint against the easy access chocolate.

Here's my take on this week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge (#49). The assignment is "Make a one-layer card with any stamp (or stamps) that have never seen ink and include the colours green and pink. You may use other colours in addition to the green and pink." I took this opportunity to use a new stamp set that I got last weekend. I think the butterfly image is so pretty with the intricate design. I used a circle die and some scratch paper to mask off the outside of the card, leaving a circle space for the images. I like how the music background helps define the circle, instead of me having the draw the circle.

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Green, Dark Peony, Yellow Ochre, Blackbird. Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.
