Less is more challenge two - OLC


The lessismore second challenge is for a OLC (one layer card if you haven't come across the abbreviation before), with a theme of a flower or a tree.

Again, I've dug out a stamp that's been stashed away forever and never been used.  I think it looks really striking on the white card base.  I've simply stamped it with a Memento black inkpad, coloured with Promarkers and then added some embossed lines around the edge of the card and a few diagonally. 

After a visit to Kerry's (A load of old pickle) blog, she's a link to another challenge which this card would fit into:

The theme for this challenge is white with a touch of colour.
