A Get Well Card

This week at Less is  More  it's the dreaded One Layer Challenge with a theme of Get Well,  while at ATCAS the code word is Get Well. This  is my (rather feeble) attempt at both challenges. I don't think the old brain cell is working too well this week.....
I do tend to struggle with  one layer cards, never being quite confident in my own judgement over where the borderline between "not enough" and "too much" lies. I stamped the flowers and greeting  in the corner of the card, and it looked rather TOO simple, so I dry embossed a diagonal line and a double row of scallops. However I simply could NOT get the lighting right so it's almost impossible to see my embossing.

 
 
The embossing shows up a little better with the card laid flat

  1. It's lovely Jane and I think that the embossing is just the right finishing touch.

  3. Hi Jane. Your flower spray in the bottom corner is so pretty ... love the bright and cheerful colors! The embossing adds a nice detail. Great job with the one layer card ... I find them difficult as well. And thanks for joining us at ATCAS. Loll

  5. Hello Jane - what a pretty card. I love the embossing but it is so difficult to capture on a photo, but you can definitely see it here. Thanks so much for joining us for this challenge at A2CAS.
