Crazy Card Party #21 - One Layer Card

Ok - so I know you all thought I would fail this challenge!  But I think I rocked it - so much so I even made 2 cards!  The first card I tried a really cool technique with some Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder and some Distress Glitter!

This second one I did using a stamp set that my friend Patricia let me check out from Studio Calico!
