Hi there! The most recent One Layer Wednesday Challenge is to use YELLOW! Here's what I came up with:

That's the new little Giraffe E140 from DeNami Design! Isn't he ADORABLE?!?! I masked him off and then stamped the Polka Dot Background N133 in Thatched Straw VersaMagic---I'm totally in love with this ink color these days!!

I used my Martha Stewart Scoring Board to score the lines above and below the Small Baby Script E68 (DeNami Design). I really like how it adds a clean and finished look to the overall design.

I embossed just the bottom portion of the card. I recently saw Christina MacLaren do this on a set of thank you cards she made, and I really liked the effect. So, I thought I'd give it a try! (Thanks for the inspiration, Christina!)
That's all for today! Hop on over to Susan's blog, Simplicity by Late Blossom, to find out how you can play along in this challenge and to see all of the amazing cards the other participants have created!

This is perfect. I received a Michaels's gift card for Christmas so because of you I am going to get the Martha Stewart scoring board. I love the way the score lines look on the card. Did you use your light box for this card?
