Less is More - Just One Word

I have only a few presents left to wrap after the house goes dark tonight, so I procrastinate by making cards *g*

I visit "Less is More" fairly often but I've never participated, however this week it has a challenge for cards with 'Just One Word' and immediately I knew I wanted to do one that says 'Thanks' to send out after the holidays.

I got some new stamps this week from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine. The Floral Collection designed by Jenny Ellory. This gave me the excuse to immediately jump on the big flower stamp using it, so the flowery corner stamp and the butterfly both came from that set and 'thanks' is a stampin' up stamp, both stamped with a black papermania ink pad.

(and I congratulate myself on for once knowing where everything on my card came from!)

I did try it with a bit of colour on the butterflies wings but think it works better without really... and I being so easy it's the perfect card to be reproduced as many times as I need it!


  1. Super card, great to see you at "Less is More"

  5. Love your decision to leave this in monochrome. I haven't been playing with LiM for very long but I can tell you that it's a fab challenge blog to play along with. The challenges really make you think and experiment and loads of people visit each other's blogs too which is so encouraging! Hope you had a lovely Christmas Day!
