Patio Lanterns

This week's challenge is to make a one layer card on MFP's Sketch with a Twist.  I love the challenge of one layers and knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as I opened this set of stamps.  It's this month's release, Chinese Lanterns and I really love it.  I think it's my third set of lanterns that I own.  Unfortunately, I botched 5 cards before I got this right.  I was trying a new, very juicy ink pad and inky fingers were a problem.  When I went back to my tried and true Momento ink, I was fine.

One-layer often has many interpretations, I say it is one piece of card stock folded in half.  This week the sketch is asking for no embellishments.  Now I did use some gold Smooch on my card but I'm going to call it ink and therefore still okay.  My personal definition of one layer often cheats with bling or other small embellishments but what can I say, I'm a rebel that way.
