... and now for something completely different....

Well it's something a bit different, at least for me!!  
Less is More wants us to make a One Layer Card and include Doodling.... so that's what I've done!  I've used a lovely cream pearl card.  The first one I made was actually a lovely warm grey pearl card... but that's in the bin - along with the second one and there's no more grey, so.... it's a nice CREAM pearl card.
My Mojo is still woefully absent, so I thought a nice Clean and Simple One Layer Card wouldn't tax me too much; HAH!!  I took absolutely ages fiddling around with the digis on this card to make the silhouette ("Lovers" from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps) fit into the Fancy Circle from Bearly Mine Designs, which I've had for an age!  It would have been much easier if it wasn't a One Layer Card challenge... I would have just cut the centre of the circle out.  Anyway in the end I got there and only used Word to do it.  Crafty Sentiments has Use a Digi as their challenge, I've used a couple so I'm in! 
I kept the inside simple to suit the outside, by adding a strip of sheer gold edged ribbon with black sequins.... that's it!!
The sentiment is a new stamp I got for $1 in Lincraft the other day. stamped with Stazon ink.  I added extra doodling to the circle and added swirls and doodles to the sentiment too.   To give a more "finished" look, I embossed some lines as a border to the card, I added a rhinestone earring to the lady as there was a "white" one on the silhouette which didn't look quite right... hope that doesn't make it a two-layer card!  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has an Anything Goes theme, so I'm entering there.  Lisa's Waste Not Wednesdays challenge to use up our stash is just about ALWAYS appropriate for me... so much stash, so little time, lol.
Well that's it for my OLC... with doodling.  I'll be back in a day or so, hopefully my Mojo will be back in town!  Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
