Less is More Sketch Challenge

Feeling a bit better today so I thought I would make the most of it and make a simple card for this week's Less Is More challenge. I was thrilled to have one of my cards make to the Less is More showcase a couple of week's ago. This week's challenge is a sketch which you can see here. A really fab sketch and I love making DL cards so this was a pleasure to create.

I bought the the leafy background stamp years ago from LB crafts but sadly it seems to be no longer available.

The lovely flowers are by Prima...




...I just added a fab sentiment by Paula Pascual.

Well today I am going to sit out in the back garden and take it easy. Despite the weather forecast saying it wasn't going to be very nice, the sun is trying to come out and unusually for here on the South East coast it isn't windy!!


Hope you all have a good weekend.

Another beautiful card Sarita.
This one is quietly dramatic... funny phrase, but it's what occurred to me when looking at it!
Simply as stunning as ever.
Thanks for another great card.

Nice to hear you're having a "good" day for a change and have taken advantage already by producing such a wonderful card - that leafy stamp is divine.
The weather here in Warwickshire is certainly a lot colder than it has been for the last few days which is typical because its the weekend.
