One Layer Cards - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Color Challenge, this weeks challenge is One Layer Cards (one layer of card stock folded in half).  I certainly struggled with this weeks challenge theme, as I'm more of a "the more layers the better" type of stamper.  I apologize for the bad lighting on the photos, we had a gloomy rainy day today!

Really CAS for me...I embossed a Spellbinder Die in the center, then stamped the diploma and sentiment from the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation set.  Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone, as it looked to plain for me, I cut down the white panel and added it to a Black base card.....

Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Graduation
Ink - Black, Caramel, Red
Card Stock - White, Black
Other - Big Shot, Spellbinder Die

Color Recipe:
Diploma - #3 Black, #2 Caramel, #1 Caramel
Ribbon - #3 Black, #2 Red, #1 Red stamp off

And here's a photo of the fine young man receiving the card - our son Jim, who graduated from HS yesterday.
