I'm loving the Less is more challenges,they really make you stop and think,in fact I'm thinking that maybe less of the picture and a slightly lower sentiment may have worked a little better. Want to know what else I'm thinking? maybe I take far too long on some cards when one of these simply creations looks so good! The challenge this week was to pick a square on your card to use for your focal image, call by their blog for more information. The lovely pansies by Papermania Botanical were stamped using Momento Tuxedo black and coloured using Copics.
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Less is More 17,Pick a square,
Simply Create 44,Special day,
Crafty Purple Frog,Things of beauty,
Crafty Sentiments,Special Occasions,
ABC Challenge,V is for violet.
I'm off to experiment again using another square,
 Thanks for stopping by,

CAS cards most certainly do take longer to make that more layered ones. Perfect placement is crucial
Yours is just that...perfect!
Thank you

I love pots of flowers versus vases. These are petty.

That is a very beautiful card - and I really like the LIM challenges as well - they do make you think about how to achieve so much with very little...

Thanks for sharing with us at The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge!

I just LOVE this.. Don't get me wrong I love to see cards stacked up with layers also.. But if I were to see this is a store I would buy it..

Hope you are having an awesome day..

Hugs, Linda

Perfection...clean and simple! This is wonderful and the image you selected is perfect. It POPS in the sea of simplicity. Why don't we keep it simple...???? I'm sure Frued would have plenty to say on the subject!
