This is a card I made last night for a challenge at Ink-Stains, what a doozey of a challenge Kim set us, we had to make a card with only one layer, Use Rubber Stamps and only one embellishment... Gulp!!!.. anyway here is my card.. With our challenges at Ink-Stains, it's quite fun, we do a Challenge/Mingle... which means everyone in the challenge sends there card onto someone else in the challenge... it's so much fun to give and receive these cards :o)
Delightful bits I've used for this one layered card are - Autumn Leaves Doodle bloom stamps, Stampin Up Delight in Life Stamp, Cardstock, Distress Ink Pad - aged mahogony, clear embossing powder, white gel pen, some lace left over from my Ruby St Design Kit, and my sewing machine.
Now the beautiful picture I've used for my Anzac Tribute above is yours for the taking, if you'd like to save it on your computer for use with your papercrafts please go right ahead :o)

In the tomb so cold they laid Him
Now the fear of death is broken

Aboriginal rock paintings of mythical stick figures at Kunminyini Springs, about 25 km south of Borroloola, near the south coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Northern Territory.
And this is my card after being inspired by the above photo. Originally I was going to make a quite involved card, but once I cut these amazing images out, I just sat them on the black cardstock, and felt that anything else I could do would only detract from their form.
so I then just did some uneven stitching around the outside edge, and I'm really happy with the end result.
Todays tip for you... I printed off this image, because it was quite faint I drew around the outside lines of the forms with pen, then photocopied the image and increased it by 200%
Then put the photocopy over the top of the PP I wanted to use, and drew over the lines on the photocopy, leaving an indent in the PP, thus making it easy to cut out.. this is particularly good when the images have fine details such as this, which are often hard to make templates for.
So have you dared to DARE yet?....... COME ON I DARE YOU!!!!!!!
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.
Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life -
I know that it is finished.
I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no pow’r, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from his reward?
I cannot give an answer,
But this I know with all my heart,
His wounds have paid my ransom.
