Seeing Stars (and Hearts)

This card is for two challenges - One Layer Wednesday 95 over at Susan's blog, which is to make a one-layer card using at least one heart and one stripe (my stripe being the scoreline), and Creative Belli Challenge #147 - Stars.

Now the theme of One Layer Wednesdays is to produce a one-layer card with no or minimum embellishments, whereas the theme of Creative Belli challenges is to use old or forgotten embellishments.  The more eagle-eyed among you may notice that there are no embellishments on this card, but I've stretched the rules a bit for the Belli challenge, because it was the stamp that was old and definitely forgotten - I'd forgotten where I'd stored it!  It took two rounds of searching before I finally found it in a box that I'd already checked.  Hmm.

If I get disqualified for not using embellishments, maybe someone should start a challenge for old and/or forgotten stamps.  Not me though.  Maybe there's one already?  Ever counted up how many stamps you just had to have that have yet to see an inkpad?  Frightening.

  5. Darling card Shirley! I like the placement of your score line, and what a great idea for a challenge you have. We all have old or forgotten stamps and such. Thanks for playing along with the OLW Challenge this week.
