Less is More

Well, after posting about this on DoCrafts and getting a lot kind comments, I decided to actually gather up my courage and post a card on the Less is More challenge.

I've said to lots of people that this isn't my first style of cardmaking, but having played along on my own blog for a couple of weeks, and finding that I'm enjoying the style I thought I would post a card and see what happens!

So this week it's a sketch and this is what I came up with, and I have to say I like it!  The stamp is from Panduro Hobby, coloured with my pencils and cut out with a circular nestie.  The border stamp is from Blonde Moments and the sentinment is a mixture of different stamps.  I think it works, although I wonder if it is too less and not enough more!

In fact I liked it so much that I did more, with different images and sentiment positioning also adding a piece of patterned paper on one card:

I am rather nervous about posting this card, but if I don't have a go how will I learn?

I suppose I should just stop waffling and do it!
