Weekend Challege # 5

Welcome to this weeks challenge. Below is the sketch. The challenge is to do a one layer card with one ribbon. For those who don't know, a one layer card is just one piece of cardstock, no more paper added. So here is where you stamps shine. I had a hard time with one layer. One of the cards I made for this did not turn out. But now that I made some, they are so hard. I like the simplitic look that comes from one layer cards. Here are the two cards that did make it. Embossing is an easy way to decorate one layer cards because you can do it with just the cardstock. As you can see, I embossed on both cards.
