Celebrate Today

Sometimes I like to make one-layer cards because, even though they look simple, they can be very challenging, meaning that they can be just as fun as mult-layered, well-embellished cards. 

Some of the challenges in making a one-layer card are: the proportion of blank space in the card; number of colors to be used and proportion of space for the sentiment, if we decide to include it on the card front.  In this card I made it rather colorful and busy:

I always find this stamp set very cute and I think the lanterns are perfect for making this one-layered card.  The bright vibrant colors give a lift to the sentiment "Celebrate Today!"
