I am trying my hand at one-layer cards. 
I searched for sketches that could be done in one layer -- and I found these two -- both very similar:

My Favorite Things and at Clean and Simple

I layered some die-namics form My Favorite things to create the "sketch".  The flower stamp is from Hero Arts and the SMILE is from Paper Trey.  I colored it with Inktense pencils then, used watercolor to blend the inks.  A couple of dots from Viva Décor pens. And done. 
Pretty easy -- the hardest part was figuring out how to use the 2 dies to emboss the sketch I wanted. 
The challenge at Less is More  the subject of your One Layer Card should be Spring Flowers.  I think this qualifies. 
Also at the One Layer Simplicity the challenge is to use Watercoloring. 
Thanks for looking.  I hope you like it.
