One Layer Challenge

A card with one layer....sounds easy enough.....NOT! After quite a bit of trial and error, I finally succeeded to make something that is good enough to post. Not a favorite, to be sure, BUT, not too bad.....hopefully, you'll agree!
This is simply a half sheet of Almost Amethyst cardstock folded in half and has NO layers, as challenged. The images used here are from that fun new set I've been playing with, Charming....which was used to create the background and the floral border. There is so much you can do with this set, and so many looks to create!
Since I couldn't add layers, details were important......as you may have noticed, the bottom corners are rounded, the flowers and frame are highlighted with my White Gel Pen, which really helped the images to kind of "jump off the page!" To align everything perfectly, I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig....this look really couldn't have been achieved without it! BUT, I wouldn't want to make too many of these cards!
Thanks for stopping by! Can't wait to see what the others have come up with. Here's the info:
Stamps: Charming, Wee Wishes, Framed with Love
Inks: Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac
CS: Almost Amethyst
Misc: White Gel Pen, White Taffeta Ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig
PLEASE NOTE: ALL materials used to create this sample are from SU!
