White one layer

I was happy to see today's color combo because sometimes it's just easier to go back to basics :) I made two cards today using the new sets Act Of Kindness and Rejuvenate.
For the first card, I embossed the shape using Nestabilities and then stamped the sentiment. I stamped the flowers in Riding Hood Red and So Saffron. I love how these colors look with the black and white, so striking!

For this card, I cut the card base to be slightly larger than my stamp. I stamped the main image and sentiment, colored image with colored pencils, blended using OMS and added some sparkle to the bubbles with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I also added the towl bar and some more bubbles with dimensionals to give a little depth.
So quick and easy! It is kind of refreshing doing a one layer card because I don't have to spend sooo much time trying to figure out what color papers I want to use and then changing my mind a million times before I'm done lol!
