Less is More


The new challenge over at Less is More for week 28 is a One Layer Card, Chrissie and Mandy are saying we can use 'Ink'.
Well out came some  favourite distress inks vintage photo, shabby shutters and broken china. I used these to create the background using a home made rectangular mask. The stamps I used are Crafty Individuals.
I don't often us words these days as I am continuing making my sets of notelets, but this phrase seemed to suit the  image,  'Fill each day with joy'.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
