One layer card

After starting back crafting regularly I've had another week of no cards.  I had emptied my craft room on Sunday as I was expecting delivery of a work table on Monday that would take up the whole wall so needed the room clear to give us room to fix it all up.  Cutting a long story short the table finally arrived on Wednesday evening and my daughter and son in law fixed it up for me.  Thursday I was out all day so only started to put everything away on Friday.  As always with such a task it took longer than I thought it would and I finally sat down Saturday morning to play in my craft room.  I am entering this card into the following challenges

Less is More  One layer card with the subject of foliage

Sister Act #69  Anything goes

Crafty Sentiments Designs  Add a sentiment

I used a leaf stamp that had been a cover gift in Craft Stamper a few years ago.  I inked it up in several Distress Inks from Tim Holtz to create the border.  The sentiment stamp is from Sweet Stamps, an American company.  I was fortunate enough to win a challenge prize with them and chose a couple of different Happy Birthday stamps
