Less is More - one layer, off the edge


Well here we go on my favourite week at Less is More (NOT!), it's the one-layer card, and this week Mandi and Chrissie have challenged us to go 'off the edge' of our card.

It's a bit of a boring effort I'm afraid... I'm wondering if I should have added some pearls to the tree or something - any suggestions welcome!  The tree stamp is a Kanban one, the sentiment is from this set from Little Claire.  Stamped in Rich Cocoa memento ink, on pale blue linen effect cardstock.

I was showcased again for the pastel card I made last week - so thrilled, thank you Mandi and Chrissie.  I think it's unlikely I'll be showcased for any of my one-layer cards though LOL!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

  13. I think this is gorgeous Lisa, it works beautifully in Rich Cocoa... I think black would have been too much, I wish I had thought of using the same ink on my latest card....

    You have done a fantastic job chick, I love your design, the sentiment works beautifully too, I really love that font...

    There is no need to add anything more to this card, honestly it's beautiful the way it is!!!
