One Layer Card

I woke this morning to a 30C windy morning (not pleasant at all as the wind is even hotter) and checked out this week's challenge over at Less is More.  It is an anything goes, one layer challenge, so I am entering this card:


I don't often make one layer cards, but with this beautiful deckle-edged platemarked card base, I felt this was the perfect occasion to do so.  I like the soft water-colour effect of colouring the stamp with markers, lightly spritzing with water and stamping.  No sentiment yet, as I will probably add that when I need to send it.  I did add some stickles for interest ....
The stamp is by Gina K from the Hello Sunshine set, and the little butterfly is from the Petals and Wings set.
