Pastel flower card


Another card for the 'Less is More' challenge.
Week 76,  a one layer card and......
"Three of anything that is, three colours, three images, three
 stamps, three words, the number three.... it's up to you, but don't
 forget the white space, a simple design and just one layer!"
I went for three flowers here if there is any doubt, or three things,
the flower stamp, the ink washed panel and the sentiment stamp.
I used my distress ink again, masked a panel, sponged paint on,
stamped a flower, stamped a sentiment , bit of glitter, job done.
Can't believe how relaxed I am about one layer cards
now. They used to terrify me. Thanks Chrissie and Mandi 
I have learned so much. Layout is key of course,then you have
 to get all the elements just right. Oh my I sound like an expert,
I am not lol...but feeling happier about looking at that blank
 card these days.
ps. Awake most of the night again with the old Rh Arthritis & all this
 horrid rain which make it sooo much worse. Here early again at 5.30. am
, so glad I can go blog hopping to take my mind off stuff.
Enough waffling I think, here is my card. Sorry...... moan over !!

Hi Viv, Two fabulous LIM entries this week, I love both:0) The butterflies are brilliant in the squares and this card is just such gorgeous colours, clever you! Sorry to hear about the Arthritis, what a rotten pain, have you tried cider vinegar? It certainly helps me! a little honey and warm water to take away the challenging taste and I feel much better for it, feel better soon, hugs Gay xxx
