Also-It's Stamp Simple time
 Head on over to Sharon's blog to read all about it! 

One Layer Cards - Today’s challenge is brought to us by Barbara Anders and here is what Barbara says: I’m challenging everyone to make a one layer card. That means only the card base–not the base + one other layer–no layers allowed, LOL! Embellish however you want–ribbon, buttons, bling, scoring–anything goes, but no layers! 

And this is actually not my favorite card...I used to think I LOVED OLC...but I kept wanting to add layers to this!!  Not a LOT, but a a few.  
The stamps are from the Samantha Walker retro road trip set.  I used some pti ribbon,  my trusty nestabilities, and copics to color it in.  

Anyone is welcome and invited to play!  SCS Keyword is ssnotime151 for those who upload at SCS.  There is no time limit. You can play this challenge  anytime at all.  The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun!!!
