Hooray for Saturdays! And this particular Saturday starts a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers:
Is our mascot, Edna, not looking fabulous once again? Our challenge this week is to make a one layer card. In a way too convoluted to explain, somehow the Sisters got from one-layer cards to a one layer, or FLAT, Edna! (Think of Flat Stanley, with added snark.) Our graphics maven Lee took her Edna to Rothenburg for the afternoon and this challenge badge is one result. Our flat Ednas have been everywhere! Flat Edna and I spent a recent weekend in our nation's capital, Ottawa:

|Why hello, soldier! :Þ|

One layer cards are hard! If you mess up, there's no way to hide it. Well, other than starting to add layers to the messed-up card, then trying again to make a new one layer. So I am pretty pleased that this card only took one try! That may be a one layer first for me. I also used a stamp set I won ages ago that had yet to make it to a card. The bottom edge is sponged in the same green as the foliage, while the top is sponged with blue. I stamped the sentiment in grey rather than black to keep everything soft and muted.
CAS on Sunday happens to be looking for sympathy cards for their current challenge, so I'm linking there.
Be sure to visit all the Sisters' blogs to see not only their one layer card inspiration, but also where Flat Edna has been! We also have a terrific guest designer, Pink Unicorn. You have until August 8th to show us your own one layer creation. You may just be our next Queen of Snark!
