less is more

Hi everyone.

I'm back home, with a few cards made, most of which I can't share with you until the 1st April, it's getting close, I'm so excited!!

Last week I was looking on-line at other crafty blogs when I came across a post for a 'clean and simple' card. I'm more of a 'more is more' kind of girl rather than less is more but I thought I'd check out the Less is More blog (you can take a look by clicking on the name). So many of the cards were simple but stylish so I thought I'd have a go at the next challenge.

I got my boyfriend Dan, to go onto the site and find out this week's challenge, and was horrified to hear that it was a masculine card. These are the only cards that I dread being asked to make, they are so difficult, so this really was going to be a challenge!

Well here is my first attempt.


 I think I may have gone a bit too simple, what do you think? I'd love to know what you think of the clean and simple style.

Here's what I used
Stamps, Cheers to you
Paper, Chocolate chip CS, Crumb cake CS, Old olive CS
Ink, Chocolate chip, Whisper white
Accessories, Scallop border trim

Back soon with some more cards xx

Welcome to "Less is More" I'm glad you found us!
Your card is not too simple at all, we like to see lots of 'white space' even if it's brown!
I hope you will enter our challenges on a regular basis!

I don't think it's too simple. It's a great guy card. I like how you stamped a pattern on the panel.
