Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #18: One Layer Cards

Hello Everyone!  I hope everyone in cold corners if the world is warm & safe today.  Time for a new Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge!  This time Jen has chosen: 'One Layer Cards'!

Easy peasy right?  So you have no excuse not to play along!  I decided to use the cute koala bear from 'Hanging Around' for a support card for a recovering friend:

I added flock to the koala bear (and his tail and the leaves) to make him extra soft, see?

To create the illusion of another layer I punched an oval shape from a piece of scrap paper and sponged some Pool Party ink in the cut-out center and then stamped the sentiment in the middle of it - pretty cool huh?  

Additional Challenges:

Check out the Newton's Nook Designs Blog for the details of you how can play along with our challenge, how you can WIN a gift certificate to NND, and for more inspiration from my talented NND teamies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

I would love to see and touch this myself! Love your design, and the great mint and grey color combo! This card would work for most everyone who is enduring this hard winter, too! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
