Less is More

I have just discovered a new challenge blog that is just right for me at the moment.  I love making fussy, highly-detailed cards, but sometimes simple cards can be good too, plus they are so much less time-consuming if you are short of time! I would recommend looking at the Less is More blog if you’d like an idea for a quick, but elegant, card. All the examples and the challenge entries that I have seen have been gorgeous.

Here is my take on the latest challenge, which is a sketch for a tall, skinny card of DL proportions.

The bunting stamp is by Molly Blooms, and coloured with Promarkers, and the sentiment disc is by Craftwork Cards.  Everything else is from my scrap box.

Thanks for visiting!
