Less is More week 128-one layer with a twist!

Phew, hot, hot, hot!!! We were Charlie sitting for a couple of days and then got back Saturday to attend a Summer Ball. Too hot for dancing but I managed to boogie as long as I had my fan, which kept me cool  :D/
Anyway this week's challenge over at Less is More is:

One Layer Challenge 
this week we like to see cards which are 
NOT SQUARE or RECTANGULAR

I had this idea of making a cake shaped card which I quite like IRL but it looks decidedly odd in the photo, more like a liner!!


I drew the shape, cut around  and decorated it using Majestix stamps and SU Baja Breeze and So Saffron inks. I used liquid pearls to the centre of the flower.

Charlie was in great form and is communicating very well  with baby signing, his favourite is the one that asks for more  :) So on that note I'll leave you with my latest photo of him!

A super card, those stamped flowers are just the right size and the Blue with yellow is a great colour combination. Fab photo of Charlie.

It's a wonderful shape and you've made this card looking layered even though it's a one layer card. Well done!

That's really clever Val, I'm finding this challenge tricky because novelty shapes are hard to do one layer but you've proved me wrong!!!
I bet this heat isn't slowing Charlie down..... children just don't feel it the same do they!!!
