LESS IS MORE..WEEK 3.."SPRING"

Hi everyone....today's card is alittle different from my usual,i decided to join in on the LESS IS MORE CHALLENGE,it's a theme week this week "SPRING".....and this sentiment of Ann's (Raindrop Echo Designs) is just perfect for that theme,the sentiment is from the "Spring Sentiments" set and can be purchased from WHIMSY STAMPS.
I sized the sentiment to suit my needs and printed directly onto my cardstock,i used slightly textured cardstock,i then used my Scrollwork Frame embossing folder to frame it and to add little dimension to my card.
I added a touch of colour to the flower using Prisma Pencils and finished off with a self adhesive gem to the center.
I've added some some stretchy silver elastic across the top and tied a bow...not sure about this may take it back off....what do you think...leave it on or take it off ?.

Well that's a short and sweet post for today.
Take care

Super card San, and I love that sentiment... it really made me smile! The embossing looks great, as to the silver cord... I think without, how about you?
I hope you'll join us again next week!

Lovely card, really like how you've framed it with the embossing. (I'd take off the elastic).

love the sentiment - brilliant choice. I'd take the cord off too - its beautifully clean and simple without it.

Beautiful card-love the sentiment, embossing. I was focusing on that and did not notice the stetchy silver cord until I read about it. You don't really need it on this great card.

Debgem said...

Brilliant sentiment, really made me smile!! The embossed border is just lovely. I agree with Chrissie - don't think it needs the cord!
