Floral Thanks

A thankyou card for the Less is More Challenge Blog, YES! I managed to make a one layer card. Unbelievable I hear you say, it can't be done by Heidi, but I did it! More to the point I really enjoyed this, I had a rake(look for non scots) thru my stamps and found one that I got from a Docrafts goodybag of all places from the Henbury lane collection.
I have to admit I have only used this once before, but I really like the way this has turned out and I know I put faux stitching around the card and embossed the side, but I had too! It made me.
I stamped the image too far to the right if I'm honest, one of lifes good mistakes as it gave me the option to use a floral embossing folder to compensate.
I have coloured with my promarkers and my chalks and also edged with my chalks.
I am sharing this card with
Less is More Challenge 2 - One layer card using a tree or flower image
Incy Wincy #81 - Colour me wonderful, use mixed mediums
Top Tip Tuesday #22 - All Stitched Up
Thanks for popping over & before you go check out my mini candy up for grabs HERE or on the sidebar, I know it's only little but check the next post (when I get it on) for a couple of cards using the stamps (not the ones in the candy, but duplicates that I have) So you can see how lovely they stamp. Oh and I have used a charm or two which will also be included with the candy.
Hugs Heidi

This is great image Heidi and you have coloured it beautifully. I'm glad you enjoyed our challenge even if it is an alien genre to you! Surprising what a challenge brings out in one isn't it!
Just think, one day the card might say, do some faux stitching on me or emboss me a little and you can say... you're just fine as you are.. you don't need it. (That sounds like I used to talking to my kids).
I really hope you'll be back for another challenge next week, you never know Clean and Simple may even become 'your thing'!
