One Layer Card Challenge

I am entering another one layer card for the challenge today over at Simply Less is More and the theme is: 
 
 BOOKS/LITERATURE
 
I have used a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl called 'A Good Read Maddie'
 
Sassy Cheryl - A Good Read Maddie digital stamp
 
I used my Copics to colour in the stamp and without thinking I die cut it out using WPlus9 Sunshine Layers.  Then it struck me that I had to make a ONE layer card and a lot of 'bothers', 'oh poo'  (and worse) came out of my mouth!!! 
 
Anyway - I then realised I could attach it to another die cut if I made it slightly larger and folded over a small portion at the top to make a tab.  Voila!  Problem solved and yet another card making crisis averted. 
 
Notice I have photographed it with a slight side view so that you can see it really is a one layer card!

This card making process was 'not soothing to the soul' although I always find colouring in very relaxing.
 
Thank you for visiting my blog.

  4. Super card Wendy, and what a fab way of saving it! You did make me laugh with your description though - I think my language would have been similar! It's so frustrating when something goes wrong. Luckily your end result is gorgeous, so pretty and I just love the scallop edge to the card. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)
