Hi Lovely bloggers - I hope the weekend has been a good one wherever you may be? 
Are you all joining in this week's LESS IS MORE ONE LAYER, with Script challenge?  Go on - you know you want to!
Here is my offering - I know it looks as if  I am still in last week's  LIM Neutrals mode, but it was quite unintentional, and the base card is actually the most gorgeous shade of pastel greyish green - "River Rock" from Stampin' Up. (Twas my last piece too - sob)! 
Could I get it to look green on my photo? NO!  May try again in the morning.
UPDATE! - Took another pic. this morning with natural daylight in the room -  much better result! (Would love to learn more about photography) !!

SU River Rock cardstock  
Crackle background stamp from IndigoBlu, "second-stamped" with Versafine Vintage Sepia.
Crafty Individuals script, stamped with Vintage Sepia.
Chocolate Baroque image from the Fantasy Meadow set, inked with Staz-on Timber Brown.
Sentiment from Layers of Color Art Stamps.
Have a very happy week ~ love to all

Fabulous card, looks great in the neutral colours.
I hate my camera, dare not ask for another one though as I have only had it a couple of years.

Hello Sylvia-Anne
What a truly beautiful card and all on one layer! I am so very impressed as I find CAS so difficult to do.
