One Sheet Wonder Card



Another challenge from Angelosity brought this card out of the corners of my imagination. The challenge was to use Olive, Red, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue all on the same card. Not in my wildest imagination would I have ever thought this up on my own, but after trying to lay my papers together in a variety of ways, I decided that a One Sheet Wonder might help me tie these shades together to come up with something. It came out a bit retro-looking...reminds me of vintage wrapping paper.

In case you are wondering, a "One Sheet Wonder" is rather like making your own hand-stamped background paper that you would use in projects, like cards, journals, scrapbook pages. By using your own images and colors, each print is unique and ideal to make sets of cards and accessories. More on that later.

Here is where I found the card challenges, when I was blog-hopping the other night and found a great site that has not only a lot of great ideas, but right now a celebration of 18 days of Angelosity with prizes, sketches and treats! It's not too late to join the fun!

C-ya Later!
