less is more


This was a very quick card to make. I do like the 'less is more' style of card, I should make them a little more often. They can be so clean and fresh.
I made this card with Personal Impressions cherry blosson stamp coloured with Promarkers with a dab on glitter. I used a Nestie circle to chalk a blue hue ans added a rub on sentiment. I finished with a Martha Stewart corner punch.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
