Less Is More - Threes

This week's one-layer challenge over at Less Is More is to make a card using threes, three colours, three images, three words, the number 3 - get the picture?

I struggled a bit as I had lots of stamps with three images all on the one stamp. In fact the stamp set I used has three flowers on long stems on just one stamp (lucky I didn't opt for that as I subsequently spotted a lovely entry made using that very same stamp!). But I opted to make life more difficult (as usual) and went for three stamps, plus three colours and three words :)
I used:

- 6" x 6" white square card stock

- stamps from an Autumn Leaves set by Rhonna Farrer called 'Flowers Stamps', stamped in SU inks, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie.The flowers and colours remind me very much of a mini-dress I owned in the dim and distant past :)

- double embossed lines above and below the flowers, which only just show up in the photo needless to say

- SU's sentiment from the 'Sincere Salutations' set - stamped using Tempting Turquoise

Thought I'd better link this in today lest a senior moment catches me out :) I'm all 'three'd out' now!
