Week 6 One Layer Card - Off the Edge

This week over at
they are challenging you to make a
One Layer Card - Off The Edge

For my card I used a stamp from Artylicious - Decadent Brocade (not sure if this is the correct title)
I stamped onto White Hammered 5 x 7 card blank using Memento Rhubarb Stalk Ink.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is a stamp from The Aspect of Design range - Japenese Mini's available from
I would apppreciate your comments as I think the sentiment should have been a little lower on the card.
Thanks for looking, your comments are always welcome

I`ve had my eye on that stamp for ages, now I`ve seen how beautiful it is stamped I want it even more. Gorgeous colour you`ve used. I think the sentiment is perfectly placed.

Stunning Christine, I love how you have stamped the 'other' bit of the stamp on the top of the other side of the card - if you know what I mean. Think your sentiment is about right and I love the colour of the ink, not seen that one before

Hi Christine,
This is super... I think that the sentiment is fine where it is, the balance looks pretty good to me... and that's quite a stamp you have there!
Thanks so much for joining us and we hope to see you again next time!

Hi Christine
That's a beautiful stamp
I dont actually think the sentiment is in the wrong place, I do think, however, the card could have been rotated sideways. As the stamp is quite 'square' I think it would have been better. Alternatively to have stamped slightly less of it, creating an imaginary third of the card base with the stamped image
In no way criticising, just my instant view as I looked at it and you felt unsure
Thanks for joining us, that really is a FAB stamp

I love it! Card is perfect. Rhubarb Stalk has to be one of my favourite inks. Like the way you have repeated a tiny bit of the stamp on the opposite side.
