Sweet Simplicity

I just love being able to create a card in under ten minutes, don't you? I had my stamp room completely cleaned up and ready for tomorrow night's Stamp Camp, but I REALLY wanted to make a card.  I found the perfect challenge at Less Is More: One Layer Thank You Card.  I paired it with the color challenge at The Paper Players.
I knew that I would have to use some sponging and Gorgeous Grunge on my one layer card. Those are my specialties when making a quick card. :) 
I first sponged Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango in a diagonal on my card.  I then added some elements from Gorgeous Grunge in all three colors and the sentiment in Chocolate Chip.  I then decided I wanted it to have a little bit more of a fall flare and added some leaf outlines over the top in a diagonal.  So easy but I am in LOVE with the results!  This Thank You stamp is just perfect for making a one layer card. I would love to see other sentiments in this large font!
