This is my card for this weeks challenge , I used a 5" square card blank, and I took an extra white 5" square of white card and went round the edge with the Martha Stewart pansy round the page punch set
The sentiment I made with Making Memories rub-on Simply stated alphas which I've had for ages but was to scared to use !!! ha ha me scared of a rub-on ... its true
The little butterfly stamp is from Magnolia and I just added a little colour with Barely Banana Stampin'up pen and RV000,RV00 and RV91 Copic sketch markers.

Less is best ...............

Over at the Less is More Challenge  the theme is "One Layer" using trees or flowers
This is my card for the challenge, I'm still having trouble trying to keep my sticky little fingers away from the embellishments but I'm determined to have a go each week to see what I can learn and to see it I can improve my neatness , I usually try to cover up my shabbiness with extra distressing so this is good practise for me to try to stay clean & simple !!! ha ha
I used a Hero Arts sentiment stamp that I bought in a set from QVC it must be 5 years ago and its the first time i think its seen ink !!! lol
The flower stamp is from my favourite stamp company Magnolia and I simply added a little colour with Copic sketch markers
Lastly I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch to create a lattice boarder to add a little simple detail
Have a great day
Hugs..............

Less is More !!

Have you been over to see the fab new blog Less is More Challenge its run by two lovely and very talented craft ladies Chrissie and Mandi, I think this is the first challenge blog of its kind where I believe plain and simple is the name of the game, this is something I'm not good at but I always admire.
I love the cards you see made with Stampin'up products that always seem to be so clean cut, over the past 3 years I have bought a ton of Stampin'up stuff and have over 90% of the products in the current catalogue but I don't get to use them coz I'm not sure how too !! so I'm hoping to learn a little from the girls and have fun joining in the challenges along the way.
This is my card for their first challenge (although I haven't used much of my SU stash here) I used a Die-matics die/stamp set and nesties circle dies. Bazzill Swiss dots cardstock and black and white SU ink
Have a great day
