Less is More

A new challenge blog to visit called Less is More set up by Mandi and Chrissie, where they are encouraging us to do things a bit more simply. I for one need to persue this, as I tend to want to keep adding more.
Thankyou for the tip about using lego blocks. So if you are curious about this tip. pop over ane take a look.
The theme for the first week is to keep to a colour palate of pink, white and black.
So my card base was easy, white. The stamping black,  using creative expressions wildflower stamp plate. Pink ribbon, sorry couldn't resist this addition, the pink square is spun sugar distress ink.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look
