Less is more

I've been missing the occasional clean and simple card that I had been making and, after stalking a new 'less is more' challenge, I thought it was about time I joined in.
The flower is from Penny Black and the wording is from a Papermania Country Companions stamp sheet. The Spotty blue backing paper is from Craftwork Cards and is free with this month's Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine.

Challenges:
Less Is More #5 - Pastel
Penny Black At Allsorts - Welcome Spring
Moving Along With The Times #88 - Anniversary
Scrapbook Sisters #25 - Spring
Craft Your Passion #48 - Anything Goes
Teacher training day today so at home with the kids. It's a lovely bright, sunny day. I just need them to hurry up and finish their homework so we can get on and get outside.

Great flower image. I would probably prefer a plain background, but still a lovely card. x

I love this image and you have coloured it very sympathetically for our theme.
Despite having a background paper, you have still created some white space on your card!
Thanks for joining us and we'll see you again next time!

Hi Kate

What an elegant card.

I think you have to be so brave to leave white space, but your card proves that we should try this more often.

Thank you for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts and look forward to seeing you again.
