Less is More - not white

Hello everyone :o)

Ok, so I'm aware that this one's a bit on the deadly dull side!  It's for this week's challenge at Less is More, which is 'white space but not white'... I made it early in the week and hoped to make another one, but I've been busy making other things that I can't share yet.  So this one will just have to do!

I've got quite a bit of core'dinations in this colour for some reason... not quite lilac, not quite grey... somewhere in between?  The butterfly embossing folder is another sneaky new purchase, and I just sanded the card back a bit and then added the sentiment.

Items Used
Core'dinations cardstock in 'dusk'
Clearly Besotted sentiment stamp
(stamped in Memento Ink in Elderberry)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Well done on being showCASed at Less is More - very well deserved! Love the stencil. You make the process sounds quite simple, but the effect is simply stunning. x
