Another One Layer card..

I absolutely love this idea for a blog challenge. You make your card according to the theme and then, if you want to you, send your card for the charity to sell to raise money. (you can of course send extra too)
The first theme is so simple, anyone can do this one, "Say it with flowers".
I've made a one-layer card (hmmm how surprising).
I've been playing around with making inking look like fabric. Brayering onto non-glossy card gives a more irregular finish than glossy, and the drawn blanket stitch edge hopefully adds to the effect.

As I am sending this card to the charity, I have tried to go for a generic card that will sell (fingers crossed!!)
The flower (from Jo's flower Cube) and altered happy stamp are all from Stampotique .

Hope you enjoy this simple (easily reproducible!) card
