One Layer Wednesday 80

I've been avoiding One-Layer Wednesday 80, but this morning I sat down and kept at it until I was relatively happy.  Susan asked us to use two images, two colors, and masking on a one-layer card.  I chose to use two hearts as my images and for my colors I used Memento London fog and Color Box robin's egg.  I masked one of the hearts before stamping the second one.

This was a hard challenge (Susan used the word diabolical), and I still don't know if I did it right.  I used the same image twice for my two images. Was that cheating? 



I didn't get things centered correctly on this one, so I cut it down and made a square card.  

I was also inspired by FTL 179 at Clean and Simple Stamping.  I did originally place the images and sentiment in the bottom left corner, but they just wanted to be up higher and more central.  So I moved them. :)

They're both lovely Ann; really crisp, fresh and stylish. I love those colours together.

I reckon this is exactly what was required Ann and it's so beautiful too. The original was brilliant but I have to say I do love it chopped down to a small square card best :0)

Super sweet card, LOVE the font! I think it was fab idea to cut the card down, now it's centred perfectly!

I think diabolical is a very good word for this challenge, lol!
The square card is exactly right - I love the alternately rounded corners :)
