Today I have a one layer card to share.
I've made this card with a few challenges in mind.

At Less is More they have One Layer Card week with the theme "Flourish".  I didn't use a image with Flourish, only a flourish sentiment. I thought but, because the word flourish has originated from "Flower", I could use some flower images along with the flourish sentiment.
For the layout I took the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch #154.
I am also entering this card into AAA Cards game 55: Glitter, since I used glitter embossing powders and glitter pens, and into SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge, as the Softly decorative stamp I used is a new goody for me.

I stamped the Softly decorative stamp from Penny Black on a black CS using embossing ink and heat embossed it using Enchanted Gold and Diamond Sparkle EPs.  (The glittery black outlines of the flowers are Diamond Sparkle EP). I colored the image using Stardust gelly roll pens.
The gold heat embossed sentiment is also from Penny Black. I added some sequins to finish off the card.
I think adding sequins is always the most difficult part in card making :)!


Thank you for visiting! 
Have a great day!

Absolutely love how you have done this card. The glitter on the black is perfect, as is your colouring. Adore this stamp, might have to go on my list of must haves. I agree with you the hardest part is the sequins.

Another wonderful card on a dark card base. That floral image is stunning, love the gentle shimmer. I struggle with sequins too but I think your placement is perfect here.
