10 Shades of [why our hair turns] Grey - for OLS14

First things first: I am not sure what rock I've been living under. 

I didn't know about this cool little One-Layer Simplicity challenge, and I can think of only one other card I've made that was one-layered.

As I was perusing my update from Shona's blog, Twine Around - seriously talented, she is - I immediately had... well... a flashback+Stewie moment.  I think you'll understand when you see my card AND I'll be asking for an AMEN:


So. Can I hear an AMEN?

Enough said - oh!  Except the sentiments are from Technique Tuesdays Mom=Love set.  Inks are shades of SSS, MFT, and PTI greys.

No I don't watch Family Guy, but ROFLMAO at the commercial with Stewie - don't ask what they are selling =]

I'm so missing out because I don't watch TV so I don't see any commercials but I love your card:)

I guess I'm under a nearby rock because I don't know what the heck you're talking about. I seldom do one layer cards so I had to go see what the theme was. Now I at least understand the card.

Chriss Blagrave said...

Perfect example for the one layer simplicity! It has been a fave of mine the last few months. I consider this challenge, well... a challenge :)

LOVE this, Michele!!!

Cat Craig said...

Wow!, great card. So simple yet impact-ful.

Sharron said...

Quite artistic--love this one!

Shona Chambers said...

Awesome-sauce!!! (I used to say awesomeness all the time but heard it on a programme Phoebe watches and it kind of stuck. To her I probably sound like I'm trying to be hip and cool....yep, I'm one of those Mum's....). So glad you were able to enter and your card is brilliant. So simple and love the colouring. The perfect Mother's Day card!!!

I'm still under that rock, Michele ... but not understanding the references doesn't stop me from sighing at this stunning ombré OLC ... blissful, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)
