"Less is More" Challenge

Hello lovely bloggers!

Being able to get my LIM card done today has been a great end to a lovely weekend. I went to Glasgow to see Take That - it was a great concert, we had a few drinkies, did some shopping .. it was a lovely wee break.

Anyhows, over at the Less is More Challenge this week, it's a sketch ...


this is only the second time I've followed a sketch - the first one also being LIM - so I hope I've followed the rules!

I've printed a sentiment (font Pristina, size 26) directly onto the card to create the 'horizontal band', then mounted 3 flowers punched from scrap DP onto 3 embossed squares.  Very "clean & simple"!


(I do think the whole sentiment should have been printed a 'smidgen' higher but you know how it is .. it took me so long to choose the font and then get it to print straight! Lol)

Well that's it, have a great week everyone.
Suze xx

I love the way that you have kept the rounded squares the same colour as the background. It has given me an idea. A great take on the challenge.
