2nd attempt at Less is More!


I thought I'd have another go at the challenge at Less is More - I seem to have a head full of ideas at the moment and not enough time to try them out.  This is another one that isn't as nice as it was in my head though!  Too plain I think.

This is loosely based on last week's sketch at Mojo Monday.  The sentiment stamp is from a Papermania set, the flowers were cut from some spotty paper I found in my scraps (an old Funky Fairy digi one I think) using an x-cut punch and I added pearl centres.  There's not much to say about such simple cards is there?

This is super. Not too plain at all. I could be reading my own blog when I read yours. I do that ` not as good as in my head` thing too. You`ve got nothing to worry about.

I don't think it's too plain at all, Lisa - I think it's just difficult sometimes to know when to stop when you're making a card! Clean and simple is more difficult than it looks!

Hope all is well with you.

Lovely card Lisa so is tuesdays. It doesn't look bare at all. Sometimes we are so used to seeing and making much busier cards we don't realise that less is sometimes better. xx
