Less Is More - Sketch

It's a lovely sketch this week over at Less Is More's weekly challenge. Simply a circle or a square in this format:
I chose to stay right with the sketch above, as it is:
I used:

- 6" x 6" pearly cream card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'From the Heart' sheet, stuck onto a piece of card and then the red border trimmed off as it just 'jarred' a bit before sticking to the card front using sticky pads

- sentiment from the 'Live Life' set by Hero Arts, stamped using SU 'Wild Wasabi' ink pad

What a wet and miserable day yesterday was - a good excuse for for some crafting I should think :) 

Little tale here - Len popped his head into the craft room and spied this card on the desk. He's a fan of Less Is More/CAS cards - so I asked him what he thought the flowers actually were on the image. 'Trumpets?' was the response! Clearly that man can't recognise a couple of hearts when he sees them :)



  1. It has a musical background so I think he is forgiven :-)

  2. Beautiful card Di, love the musical background (hubby loves all musical themes too). The intensity of the red flowers really comes out with the white background.

    Have a good day, take care xx

  3. Ooh FAB card using up those lovely Stickeroos and showing them off to great advantage.

    Perfect CAS card for the challenge.

  4. Just beautiful Di, looks like you got quite a job lot with those stickers! Quite a nice day here yesterday so I didn't get to finish the card I was working on, but it thundering and raining heavily here today instead.


  5. That's lovely Di - I really like the boxy sentiment.
