BBTB2 Wheel Barrow Challenge & Crafting By Designs One Layer Challenge

Yesterday was International Card Making Day, I was away at our camp in the mountains. I delayed it one day for me. As soon as we got home and settled, I played with my paper. I really wish I would win the lottery and I could play with my paper all of the time.
This week's challenge over at BBTB2 was chosen by Donna Mundinger. I absolutely love Donna's work. She is incredibly talented. Donna picked the Wheelbarrow from Walk in My Garden. To be honest, I completely forgot about the challenge and as I was cleaning up, I remembered. Not exactly how I wanted my card to turn out, but I'm not totally disappointed with it. Hope you like it.
And the challenge chosen by Doris over at Crafting by Designs for the first week of October was to design a card using only one layer. Sounds easy, right? Well not really. It is hard not to layer things. I was going through my papers trying to decide what I wanted to use. I had to put my chalks away, so that got me thinking. It was freezing cold this week, the high was 40 degrees and it rained non-stop, since Friday! I wasn't a happy camper. I decided to dig through my stencils, something that I RARELY use. I came up with this card, I think it is cute and it was super easy. Could also be used a CAS card too. Maybe, just maybe this will be my Christmas card this year.
As always thanks for stopping by. Let me know you were here. I appreciate and love reading all comments. Get wild-n-crazy, become a follower of my blog.
