Less is More, or is it?

Hello blogland

I used to play along with the Less is More challenge on a regular basis, but then totally lost my way with that CAS style of card - found that I wasn't happy with anything that I did - but I saw last week that Chrissie and Mandi are trying to make 1000 submissions on this weeks challenge - with the challenge being anything goes.

So I thought I'd re-visit the style and see if I could do anything that I liked.  I've already entered one card, don't think it was strictly CAS, but it was quite simple.  These however are even simpler - so hopefully more appropriate?

I've just re- read this and wonder that I've waffled on too much!  What I was trying to say is that now I wonder if I've gone to far and just made boring cards, especially the second one, rather than CAS cards.  Whichever, no one could call me shy of sharing! So there, I've made them, they're in the box and I'm sure someone will like them, but maybe not me.

I've got more on the go, will try to get them done in time to enter.

Anyway here we go with the first card:

Details are:
Panduro stamp, from the Tilda range - coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers (my new love!).
Die-cut with a nestie and chalked while the image was still in the die for definition.
Martha Stewart punch.
Elzybells sentiment stamp
Craftwork Cards card blank.

and the second:

The Stamp Barn stamp (can't see a stamp name) coloured with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Martha Stewart punch along the bottom of the piece of pearl card
On a DL card blank
ric-rac from my box

Both of them were stamped with Rich Cocoa Memento ink pad instead of my usual Tuxedo Black - something I liked the look of Rebekahs blog.  Thanks for the inspiration Rebekah.
