Less is More Challenge #332 - one layer- Sweet Things

Hooray, I found time to make a card for the latest Less is More challenge - it's one layer, 'sweet things'. And this is what I made:
And to prove the shimmer and gloss:
I used:

- 4.25" x 5.5" white card blank, tent style

- Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from the Penny Black 'loads of love' set

- the sentiment was stamped at the same time, using the Misti and the same black ink plus a stamp by Whimsical Designs from the 'Whimsical Fun - Vol. 1' set 

- coloured the image using Pro markers and added a tickle of grey to 'ground' the mouse

- added shimmer to the icing using clear Wink of Stella and then some Glossy Accents to shine up the red heart

That was it - done very quickly.

I'd also like to enter this into the current challenge over at Penny Black and More for June where they're celebrating their 7th Birthday with 'Anything Goes'. Many congratulations ladies - and especially to Brenda who works so hard running several challenges.

This is just adorable! I love the simple one layer design and the sparkle on the cupcake! One layer cards are the toughest for me to make because it's hard to cover up mistakes, ha!

I am so afraid to stamp direct to card...and very proud of you for having the courage I lack!

Great card...the WOS and the glossy accents finish off this card so nicely.
