Less is More - spring

I've finally managed to make a card for this week's Less is More challenge which is a 'spring' theme.  It's so much harder finding the time (and peace!) during the school hols.  Anyway here's my card.



I've used a cute little sheep image from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers.  The paper is from my current favourite Dovecraft 'back to basics' pack, just layered onto plain white card.  Flowers cut with an x-cut punch with spotty button centres.  Hope it's clean & simple enough!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
I'm escaping to the cinema tonight with a friend, leaving hubby to sort the boys out, think we're going to see the King's Speech.  I've been looking forward to my cinema hotdog all day lol :o)
