Enjoy today

This week's challenge at 
Simply Less is More is 'One Layer Sentiment'

Hmmm ...... what to use?  Looking at the stamps sitting on my bookcase, this one jumped out at me and I could easily visualize the other stamps that would work together nicely.

What do you think?

Take a plain piece of A5 cardstock, fold in half and stamp sentiment in the centre.
Stamp mortar board and rolled certificate in diagonal corners, add a touch of colour and there you have it - a simple one layer card.
I felt it needed a little something extra, so carefully scored a border around the edges.

All finished and took around 15 minutes to complete.

Although this week's challenge at Stampotique has changed today, this card will still fit in with the 'Time Challenge < 30 minutes' from earlier this month.
