Round is a shape

This week's Less is More challenge is to use a sport or exercise image.  I knew just the image I wanted to use:  Yes You Can from Phindy's Place.  She looks like a lady who is regretting her New Year Resolution.  At the moment Phindy has a 2 for 1 deal on her gorgeous images, well worth a visit to the shop.  I saw the layout at Sketch Saturday this week and thought it was brilliant for a clean and simple card, so I pinched Chrissie's sentiment and came up with this card.  DP is Basic Grey Out of Print, sentiment computer generated.
Then I realised that Less is More is on One Layer week...   Drat!  Oh well, back to the drawing board lol!
My card is for:
Sketch Saturday - sketch
Basic Grey - new beginnings (New Year resolutions)
SweetPeaStampers - clean and simple
Creative Moments - anything goes
Ruby's Rainbow - smile (what a lovely theme for a grey January day!)
 And here is my one layer exercise card for Less is More.  Not sure how this will look in daylight and I may well have another go at it.  I fought with those bleedin' text boxes and gave up.  Coloured with Copics but wanted to add a round shape to the round lady again.  Used my Pan Pastels and erased the yellow from the coloured bits of the design, but I think there may be a bit of Simpsons yellow left in her flesh tones  :).  Or maybe she's a dire warning...  too much exercise can give you jaundice.  Hmm, time for a glass of wine once I pick younger son up from work I think.

    I've done what you did so many times... had a great idea and forgot the one layer bit, but the second one is perfect for the challenge.
    I'll have a session on text boxes with you the next time we get together! I think there is a tut on the LIM blog actually! Take a peek!
    Thanks so much
