OLS16 Blossom

In honour of both the trees blossoming and our One Layer Simplicity Challenge founder Lateblossom (aka Susan Raihala) the theme for the May One Layer Simplicity challenge is 


You need to make a one layer card featuring blossom of some sort. If perhaps you live far south of me and you aren't feeling the whole blossom vibe any more you might like to approach this challenge differently. The other inspiration for the BLOSSOM challenge is Lateblossom's blog, Simplicity. If you are inspired by one of Susan's cards (and how could you not be?) please link to it on your blog so we can all check it out.

I chose to stamp some blossoms and feature a 'blossom' sentiment on my one layer card. I can't wait to see what you come up with.

OLS Challenge Rules

l.  A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half.  No other layers of paper are allowed.
2.  Make a card inspired by BLOSSOM, either the kind on the trees or Lateblossom's blog. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum. 
3.  Post your card somewhere on the internet and link it to us using the Inlinkz button below.  If you link to your blog, please link to that specific post and not your blog's home page so we can find it easily.
4.  The most important rule of all is to have fun!
