Less is More

It’s a quick post from me today as my craft room is a little conservatory and it’s too hot to be crafting for very long in there today.

Here is the sketch from this weeks Less is More challenge

and here is my card

073

I have used different papers from my scraps box and a stamp from the cover of Craft Stamper magazine.

I stamped the balloon onto a strip of white card and then onto different patterned papers which I cut out and stuck on. I then mounted it on to strips of the orange and green spotted paper.
