Whispers in the Wind.

Week2  for the Less is More challenge. There are some fantastic examples over there. 
This time it is a one layer challenge with the addition of  a tree or flower, together with a few words.
I used Shabby Shutters DI for the edges and the square behind the tree. The stamps  are by Crafty Individuals.  I have  resisted the urge to  add embellishments  to keep to the theme, this is proving very difficult as I always want to add more.
 Thankyou for stopping by to take a look at my card.

  1. Well done on restraining yourself from adding all the extraneous bits and bobs... this card looks great as it is; the eye is not detracted from that super tree image.
    Thanks for joining us, do comeback next time!

  13. I looked at the challenge blog and found your card with the tree that I have. Fab card. I like the background behind the tree. I did something similar but yours is much nicer. Good Luck with the challenge.
