No Layers!

This is always a challenge for me, but I had a lot of fun participating in the No Layers challenge at SUO Challenges. I combined it with the color challenge at Color Throwdown.
I wanted to do some coloring so I went to one of my new favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog, So Very Grateful. It is so much fun to color! 
I started out by stamping my frame and sentiment. Then I stamped a second frame on a sticky note, cut it out and covered the frame on my card so I could stamp the flowers over it. It actually looked very cool without even being colored in, but I wanted to participate in the color challenge, so I colored in some of the leaves with Pistachio Pudding and Crumb Cake, and some of the flowers with Pink Pirouette and Real Red. I really like the look of leaving some of them white!

Stamp Sets: Everything Eleanor, Feel Goods, So Very Grateful
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Pistachio Pudding, Real Red
Tools: Sticky Note
