Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge this week is ....
"Winter's dominant color scheme is gray and white (at least in Ohio), but every now and then, a pop of color reminds us that spring and summer WILL come. I've seen pops of red (cardinals) and blue (blue birds) out my windows this month.
This week's OLW is to make a one-layer card that uses white, gray, with a pop of one bright color of your choice. (If you must, you may use black for the sentiment.)"
Very quick and simple. I stamped the flourish from the Creative Elements stamp set in Basic Gray. Colored the "berries" in Real Red with a SU Marker. Inked the Sympathy from the Loving Thoughts set with a Basic Gray Marker.
That's it and it was done.
I had done this card yesterday for this challenge but then decided that it had more than a pop of color in that Carolina Blue sky.
Actually, it's been so warm here in Carolina that I have a daffodil blooming in my front yard. And when I went to the library this afternoon, there were several showing their happy faces.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
