One Layer Wednesday 64: Color It

This is my first time participating in the One Layer Wednesday challenge.  I have to say that A Muse give away is quite an incentive!  This week's challenge was to color on a one layer card.  I've had this topiary stamp for years and never used it because I didn't like coloring images much.  But now that I've discovered Copics, I decided to finally ink it up.

The gingham background stamp is a challenge for me.  I practiced lining it up like 3 times on scrap paper, but then didn't quite get it right on my card.  Geez!

ETA:  I realized this morning that I forgot to add that I was inspired by this card on the Simplicity blog. I have so many card ideas bouncing around in my head that I don't always remember where inspiration might have come from.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stamp:  SU! - don't know the set name, Background Basics: Gingham (PTI)
