Flourishes Noon Time Challenge

The 2012 Challenge
As we ring in the new year, let's be inspired by the numbers we'll use for the next 300 plus days! It's a limited supply challenge that revolves around 2012! So, here's your recipe: You can only use 2 colors. You can use 0 bling. You must use at least 1 embellishment and you can only have 2 layers! Let's see that creativity shine! If you upload to a gallery, please use the key word FLLCJAN12. Entries must be in before Friday, January 13th at 5PM EST.
Can I just say that this was way harder for me than I thought it was going to be?!  Two layers only?  Really? 
Okay, so my simple card is simply a sentiment from the Heartlines set stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock  and colored with Copics.  It was die cut with a Classic Circles large die from Spellbinders and sponged it with Wheat ink from VersaMagic while still in the die.  I used the Heart Circles die for the mat.   All of the paper is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet paper line.   I used a May Arts silk ribbon and pushed a stick pin through the bow. 
These designers are also playing in this challenge so go get some inspiration!
