Less Is More challenge #8

Hi everyone! Another card another challenge. I did this card when I skyped with Sherry on the weekend as well and only now getting around to putting it up on my blog. I worked all day yesterday and was just too tired when I got home to even check my blog or anything as it was very busy in the library. Simply Less Is More challenge blog is only fairly new and is co-run by an old friend of Sherry and me as in we three used to do the 365 card challenge very single day for months and months and months lol. That is how I met Sherry several years ago now and there were many of us that became very friendly and we still comment on each others blogs etc. This is why I love blogging so much as you meet so many lovely women during your journey. So I will say hello to Chrissie from Less is More hehe *waving madly*. The sketch we were to follow is below. . . .

This is my take on the above sketch.

Less is More means just that, clean and simple which I find very difficult to do so it was a real challenge for me personally. I used SU En Francais background stamp (a fav of mine) a large Prima flower and I surprised myself by using a flower from my hoarding vault!!! The DSP is from BG. That is it. So until next time. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

It;s great to see you here, yes I agree 'blogland' is brilliant for bringing people together from all parts of the globe!
Your card is FAB and although we ask for 'white' space on our cards, yours is brilliant!
Thank you

and I am madly waving back!
I couldn't believe it when I saw your face Michelle... it really was just like seeing an old friend!
How wonderful to have you join our challenge.... I really hope you'll enjoy taking part!
This is a brilliant start, I love your card, and the DP reminds me of Sherry as she sent me some of that Indian Summer stack a while back. The flower is beautiful too... you must come back next week now!
