One layer thank you card

Hi! I've had a go at a one layer card today - they don't come easily for me! But there were a few challenges I could combine so it meant I could concentrate on not bodging up my stamping! I did anyway but never mind! It's a Thank You card for this weeks Less is More One Layer challenge but I used Heathers cards as a starting point on this weeks Papertrey Make It Monday Clustered Stamped Sentiment challenge. I only really had flower stamps but I quite like how that looks. The colours are for this weeks Paper Players challenge and I'm also going to enter into this fortnights Addicted to CAS challenge of Off the Edge - 4 for the price of 1! ;-)
I'm not sure if there's something wrong with my clear embossing powder but after I wiped the ink off, there was loads underneath it so my white sentiment looked a bit muddy. I lined it up and stamped over it again with more VersaMark and embossed it, this time in white, it's given a more raised and glossy effect so a bit of a happy accident! Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like it!


Supplies;
Stamps - Papertrey Ink 'Rosie Posie', 'Sweet Life' & 'Sending You'
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink 'Think Big Favourites #5'
Ink - VersaMark 'clear' & Stampin' Up 'Calypso Coral', 'Pear Pizzazz' & 'So Saffron'
Other - white embossing powder
