Less is More challenge



Sorry I've not been around - we went to Shropshire to stay with my son and his Young Lady. What a beautiful county it is! Now for the card!

The current Less is More challenge is a simple sketch, perfect for a thank you card made in a hurry!!

The flower is Hero Arts and the text Penny Black. I stamped both in Peeled Paint DI. The strip of ivory card was cut with a fancy cutter on my Woodware Fingerguard Trimmer, then I went over the edges with Shabby Shutters DI. The flower was cut with a Nestie, and again I did the edges with DI. I raised it on foam pads. I stickled the flower to give a bit more pizazz, because it was very plain indeed with no decoration at all!

My daughter asked for a plain thank you card for her boyfriend's parents, and I had it finished in 20 minutes! She likes it, which is the main thing!

This "Less is More" challenge is very good for me, it encourages me to try things that I wouldn't otherwise think of!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

ETA: the photo is pants, irl the colours are stronger!
