Yet more Less is More!

I'm sorry, this must be getting very boring, but I'm back for a 3rd time with some more monochrome cards for Less is More!  I promise this is my last entry for this week.



Both using a Hero Arts stamp, stamped with memento inks onto white linen card from Papermill Direct. For the black version, I've stamped once in London Fog and again in Tuxedo Black, and for the purple I've used Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly.  Added a teeny bit of glamour dust to the flower centres - hardly showing in the pics.  'Thinking of you' sentiment is from a Kanban set and 'with sympathy' is computer generated and punched out with the Stampin Up 'word window' punch.

I might be back later with another creation - although I promise it won't be another LIM one!  I've got to take Morgan to the docs after school though because he's hurt his leg, so I might have to blog this afternoon's card tomorrow.

Had to laugh at your paper ban, that is a weakness of mine too, although your card without them is fantastic, that is a stunning stamp.
