Less is More

My hubby really doesn't like 'fussy cards' and much prefers when I add as little as possible to my cards (serves me right for asking his opinion I suppose lol) so when I came upon the Less is More Challenge blog I thought I might give it a try.  I really enjoyed having a go as it gives you a bit more freedom to get inky and stamp rather than spending time deciding what DP goes with that DP, which card candy to use, etc, etc, and stamping has always been my favourite part. This card is for my Mum who had a knee replacement last Monday and is a bit immobile and in need of some cheering up, I've bought some flower seeds to go inside the card as I know she'll be chomping at the bit to get back to the Greenhouse when she's back on her feet.

Items: Square 5" Cream Card Blank, Versa Magic in Thatched Straw and Persimmon, Perfect Pearls (a pinky one but forgot to note the name - oops), stamps both from Little Claire, and just a few dots on the flowers using Sakura Metallic pens in orange and gold.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Less is More Challenge - Off the Edge
One Stop Craft Challenge - Clean and Simple
The Stamp Man Challenge  - Floral Theme
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Little Claire  - Flowers
