Makeup for the weekend

It's Friday and it's time for some challenges. This week's challenge is from Paper Makeup Stmaps.  It's my turn to challenge you, so here's my Makeup for the weekend....
Create a card without using paper layers. 
You can use any embellishments you like.
You can even use a window.
I was so excited about this challenge that I made two cards.  I hope they inspire you.

My first card uses random stamping, ribbon, buttons and stitiching.
I used Buggy Sayings to make this image.
This card using a window to create dimension.  Lightly draw a circle then stamp the stars.  Cut out around the stars and what's left of the circle. 
I used the Starstruck stamp set to make this card.
Wanna play along?  Tag your cards with the keyword M4TW20.

Paper Makeup is having a sale!!  Stamps, Spellbinders and Shimmerz  are on sale.

Melyssa, I LOVE the bee card! The color combo is gorgeous, and it is so streamlined and beautiful! I wanted to click to make it bigger to study your pleats because I don't think I've seen any look that good on a card! :-)Traci

These are fabulous examples of no layer cards, Melyssa! I love the stitching on both of them and the gathered ribbon on the bee card. But I think my fav is the stars card...such a clever way to do that opening! Love it!
