Less is More–but is it enough?

As you can tell from my tile I have had doubts about my card today for the Less is More Challenge. The theme is butterflies.

I have had fun using some stamps that I have had for a while but not used although I have used other stamps in the sets. I even had a practice on some scrap paper.

I have avoided using patterned paper, punched butterflies and gems but is it enough. Now the card is finished I’m not sure. I did consider mounting the card front onto a larger card blank to layer it up.

Here is the card and the inside;

 

012

015

My first version was in black ink but that looked a bit stark and in this one I didn’t mask the wording so there is a slight overlap!

014

The stamps are;-   Prima – for the frames

                             Kaisercraft – for the sentiment

                             Cavallini ( from Waterstones) –

                                                                    for the butterflies

Hi Jeanie
i think it;'s absolutely enough! It;s wonderful!
i like the black version too. that's a fab combination of frame and flowers
The butterflies make for a super finale!
All Id say is I'd probably have shoved the sentiment up a tidge, but thats uber picky!
Thank you for entering again
