'Less is More challenge....

Another great challenge from Less is more and this weeks challenge is one layer.
I've used Hobby Art 'Floral Display' stamp and stamped it on kraft card.
Coloured with prismacolor pencils and used a nestie (upside down) to emboss a square around the image.
'Bloom' sentimant is from S.U. set 'Bloomin with Beauty'.

Thank you for taking the time to visit...

Simply stunning! I love this, Anne, so simple but beautiful. Nice colouring too, and that's a pretty little sentiment stamp, I like how you stamped straight onto the card rather than matting and layering it. CoB
