A challengeing Challenge!

Today's challenge at Whoopsi Daisy is to create something with NO LAYERS! 
Well, I love working with digital images, and one of the best features is printing them out in the size you want.  One great thing about Whoopsi Daisy images is getting the bargain of FOUR images on a sheet, SO when I printed out my super adorable firefighter, I needed to cut him away from the cute little girls that came on the sheet around him! 
Therefore, I think I still qualify for "no layers" since I didn't add mats around the outside of the card, or under the image and the sentiment, don't you!?! Ha!
Here he is in close up.  I colored him with Copics, and added a little shadow with water color pencils.  The edges of both circles are inked to make them POP!  This paper is from the Imaginisce Birthday Bash collection.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up! 
I have a little tid bit for you about the little red gems at the bottom... they are custom colored, just for this project!
First, start with Imaginisce white Metallic Glam Rocks, a sticky back note, and a permanent marker in the perfect color!

Stick the Glam Rocks to the sticky strip on the back of the note, so they stay put while you color them to match your project!  (Duh, why didn't I think of this sooner???!!!)

Attach with your battery operated I-Rock, and sit back and smile at your beautiful creation!! 

One last look at our Happy Birthday card!  This little fellow can handle a BUNCH of candles, and as the sentiment says... The more Candles, the BIGGER the Wish!

Do head over to Whoopsi Daisy and check out the rest of the Design Team's take on the No Layer Challenge, and see Linnie's darling images.  You can order them very easily, and enjoy coloring them for your next creations!

Happy crafting ~

Betty, this is so cute! I love the way you colored him; it brings back memories of the wonderful art work in books I read as a child, like Dick & Jane. Adorable card!

Thanks for the reminder about coloring the glam rocks. I own some now :)
