One layer cards....back to the basics

I had one of those cards that I needed to make for a co-worker who's mom has passed away.  These are the cards that aren't as much fun to make. 

To me the best approach in a sympathy or thinking of you card is to keep it simple.  A one layer card is one way to do that.

As I have said before I have quite a few stamps that I have had for years.  This background stamp by The Moon Rose Art Stamps is one of my favorites, especially for one lay cards.  It brings the main image in focus.

In this card I stamped the background in Coastal Cabana.  The Dandelions by Unity Stamps are stamped in Island Indigo.  I stamped the sentiment in the same ink.  The Thinking of You sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I love this because it stretches across the entire card.

Though the reason for this card was sad, I did enjoy making it since I don't usually get a chance to do stamping during the week.  Thanks for stopping by!

I will be adding this card to the following challenges:
