Hanna Stamps Friday SCS Challenge

The challenge today set by Candice over at the Hanna Stamps Forum on SCS is to make a one layer card. I must confess this challenge scared the life out of me! I have never made a one layer card before.

On my card is the very beautiful Hanna preparing for her wedding day. This image is from the Bridal set. I have kept the card very simple. Hanna is coloured with a mixture of copic sketch markers and prismacolor pencils. I have added a little stickles to her roses and lots of pearls to her dress. To add a little more texture I had the idea to add some netting to her veil. To finish adding a sheer ribbon and mini roses. The punched edge is my favourite Martha Stewart punch Doily Lace.

Update: Sandra has an awesome birthday blog candy which ends on 27th May. Wow, check out these goodies! Be sure to check out her gorgeous creations while your visiting.. you would never guess she has only been stamping for just over a year!

Wishing all my visitors a great weekend and see you Sunday for the next High Hopes Challenge.

Hugs,

One layer is always sooo difficult. I think you made a very stunning card and it's also so fresh and "pure" - just what you want for a wedding.
