OLW 88 Mini Masterpiece

Welcome to my first week as a host of the One Layer Wednesday challenge. I am thrilled to join Susan, Jennifer and Cheryl in presenting what has always been a favourite challenge of mine. In honour of my first week hosting this challenge the kind folk at Penny Black are letting me offer a prize to one of the challenge participants. Next Wednesday after OLW 88 is closed I will pick a random winner from all who linked to their challenge entries to win the Butterfly-Soft Wings and Music Background stamps featured in my card.

The challenge this week is to keep it small; you’re going to create a mini masterpiece. Your stamped image area has to be no larger than 2″ by 2″. You can add a sentiment outside that if you like. You can choose one stamp or a few stamps or mask off a 2″x2″ area like me if you like, just keep it within the limits.

OLW88 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of card stock folded in half. NO other layers allowed.

2. Make your card a mini masterpiece by keeping your image within a 2″x2″ area.

3. Upload your creation somewhere on the Internet, and then link to it using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. I know the links work a little differently on my blog; please don’t let that put you off, just click the link to see what others have created and then upload your own! Please make sure to link directly to the card and not just to your blog so people will be able to find it easily!

4. The most important rule of all, of course, is to HAVE FUN!!!!!
