OLS15...Another Breezy Card

I was messin' around with two Papertrey sets (Trendy Tree Tops and Tree Tops) and came up with this card for One-Layer Simplicity #15: Blowin' in the Wind!

When reader Christine and I exchanged glitter (I sent her loose glitter and she sent me Stickles), she included some bling in her shipment...and these iridescent purple rhinestones worked perfectly with the Pretty Petunia ink from VersaMagic!

I particularly strove for unity with this card. The two opposing rounded corners hint at movement, and the rhinestones have a bit of bubble appearance. The flight of the flowers on the breeze connects nicely with the sentiment of thinking of someone far away. I'm sending this to my mom, who is recovering from knee replacement surgery in another state.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, full of friends, family, and crafty goodness.

stamps: Papertrey and Gina K (sentiment)
ink: VersaMagic pretty petunia and Memento Luxe espresso truffle
paper: Papertrey
accessories: rhinestones, Corner Chomper 1/2"


  1. What a beautiful card. I really like the placement of the bling. My husband had his knee replacement mid February and he was out hitting golf balls yesterday. He was so thrilled. Hope your Mom recuperates well.

    1. So glad your husband recovered so nicely and quickly!

  2. I need to do this more. I tend to be reluctant to run things off the edge. I think it's some form of OCD!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
