One layer card challenge .

Hi there , welcome to my room .
Hope that where ever you are and whatever you are doing , you are happy .
Had a senior moment yesterday and thought that I had a card for this challenge but luckily I realised  my error and edited my blog and deleted it from the challenge site .
So a quick card this afternoon will hopefully fit all the  requirements .
Week 2 One Layer Challenge

The challenge is a ONE LAYER CARD with the theme of a  FLOWER or a TREE.                
And here is my card .

                                                           Glossy White
                                                             Rose Red ink
                                                                 Floral , SU
I love this stamp image and have normally used it as a background but today I wanted it as a focal point of my card .

To achieve this I created a template as shown . I cut a piece of thin paper the same size as the card front . Then I roughly tore a shape from the paper placing the frame over card and taping it down to bench. I stamped the image over card and then removed template..

Hope this gets me into challenge .
Catch you again soon cheers for now Shirley-Anne.
