OLW151 - Speechless


Now, I've been called a lot of things over the years. Speechless ain't one of them.  Quite the opposite, in fact! (I know, you're shocked!)

So this week, I'm hosting a nice, QUIET One Layer Wednesday challenge. Speechless even. No sentiments allowed.

You can make an all occasion card, or you can be a smart-alec like me and make a sentiment out of images (above) or you can make a card that is clearly for a particular occasion (like the birthday card below).


OLW151 Speechless Rules:

1.  Create a one layer card. This is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half. No other layers allowed.

2.  Create a card that has no sentiment. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and no additional layers of cardstock.

3.  Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button in the sidebar to the right. If you link to your blog, please link to the specific post, not your blog's main page. Deadline is next Tuesday at midnight (EDT).

4.  Have Fun!!  I am looking forward to seeing all your peaceful, speechless cards!


Supplies:
Recollections Bee, The Stamps of Life Happy Face (Faces4Stamps)
Paper Smooches Candle and Little Circle (Sugar Rush), Shadow (Shadows)

Excellent lesson in how to convey a message without words! Both fabulous cards - I love the Stickle-y wings on the bee, and those polka dot candles are fabulous! I've missed the last couple of OLWs but I'm hoping to play along this week.

You always make the happiest cards, Ardy! Love these, especially the Rebus card. I think that's rebus. In any case, it makes me be happy looking at it!!
