Less is More challenge

Hello everyone
Finally! I have got around to entering challenges again.

After posting my one layer card yesterday I realised I could have entered it in the Less is More challenge - but I decided to make another card instead.

The challenge this week at Less is More is just to produce a CAS (Clean & Simple) card & they are hoping to get 1000 entries as they had recently reached 1000 followers.  So here is my entry;

To get my symmetrical heart shape I drew a half shape on a folded piece of paper then cut it out & sponged "Red Brick" Distress Ink through the aperture.  The rose is a Clarity stamp & the sentiment is one I have had for a long time & they were stamped in black archival ink.  It looked it a little too white & missing something so I found some narrow black ribbon just to add an edge to the card & finished it with a faux bow.

Thank you for stopping by on your blog travels - please call again & your comments would be most welcome.  Thank you.
