Just Us Girls #317 - Wild Card: One Layer Cards

Happy Halloween!  I hope the ghosts and goblins come to your doors tonight begging for treats and not tricks!
 
This is the 5th week of the month, which means that we have a Wild Card Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  Sharyn is our hostess and she has chosen One Layer Cards as our challenge this week.
 
I don't usually make one layer cards...they scare me!  LOL!  But I persevered and this is what I came up with.  I was done making Halloween cards, and this new stamp set from PTI was on my table, so I thought it would be a good one to use for a one layer Christmas card.  I did some masking to layer the various stamps.  Before I stamped, I lightly sponged some blue distress ink in the bottom right corner.  It's so light it doesn't show up very much! 
 
You can see more from the Design Team and our guest, Julie Gearinger, on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

hello Lisa - my apologies as I mistakenly deleted my comment so have re-instated it but with your correct name this time!!!
- this is such a real bold statement of a card and just love how the elements almost jump off the page - and the light blue sponging hits just the right spot. A truly lovely card. Jan x

I know what you mean about one layered cards they are not that easy! But you did a wonderful job masking these leaves and made it work! Nicely done!
