One Layer Wednesday

My blogging friend Chrissie has introduced me to One Layer Wednesday via her blog and I have entered their challenge this week for the first time.  The challenge is to take inspiration from a page of cards designed by Walther Erhard and my starting point was the ornament card to the left.  I bought some cheap-as-chips but very good Viva Christmas stamps from Stamp Attic, my local shop a couple of weeks back and I gave them an outing for the challenge.  I embossed using 4 different powders and managed to keep the textured card pretty clear of irritating embossed specks:).
That led on to a second one-layer card not related to the first.  Same Viva holly flourish, but this time I've brushed Distress Inks onto a centre strip after clear embossing a large Viva text stamp.  I planned to gold emboss the text but decided I like it best as it is.

My cards are for the following challenges:
Ornament Branch:
One Layer Wednesday - inspiration
Paper Pretties - clean & simple

Distressed Text:
Paper Sundaes - adorn those corners!
I Did It - surprise me
Crazy 4 Challenges - script paper or folder (hope the stamped text counts!)
