OLW111- Smile

Welcome to another week for me to be hosting the OLW (One Layer Wednesday).  This week I am challenging you:

create a card that makes you 'SMILE'

With the Fall fading and winter quickly approaching, I thought it would be a good time to create a card that feels happy and makes you smile.  This stamp from Penny Black is so easy to work with and it was a breeze to paper piece her dress and flower with the happy orange polka dots.  Added the scoring line under to ground her.
( I must apologize as I feel like I cheated a bit by paper piecing her dress....had made this card, had good intentions of making another and ran out of time!)

OLW111 Rules

1. Create a one-layer card.  That is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!

2. Make a card that makes you 'SMILE' in some way.   Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
3. Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button underneath.  If you link to your blog, please link to the specific post, not your blog’s main page.
4. HAVE FUN! I am looking forward in seeing what you create!
