Only 1 color card

I’ve always seen other people’s one color cards and thought how simple and elegant they are. So I’m attempting to create my 1st one color card that I have long admired from a distance.

The die cut window and main image is from Heartfelt Creations and the sentiment and gems are from Hero Arts. That’s all there is to my 1 colored card. It really didn’t take more than 5 minutes to get this done and I’m wondering if perhaps I’m missing something…hmm.

Maybe I’m going to try more.
