My second Less is More - One Layer Card

Here's my second card for the Less is More challenge for this week - a one layer card with little or no embellishments and should feature music.
I've used the same Kaisercraft and Paula Pascqual stamps from my previous post and added some Tea Die and Vintage Photo ink.  The musical note was cut out with my Cameo.

Less is More week 106 One Layer

Hi everyone! Hope you're well!
Whoa! Where did those two months go?  It's been a long time since I last posted and tbh I haven't really missed it - it does makes you realise how much time is taken up by the whole blog thing and how much more time could be used doing other things. 
Anyways,I've gotten a new laptop and connected my little Epson printer to it so I've been able to get crafty again this weekend using the dining table in the lounge - not ideal really but better than nothing. (My daughter is still hogging my desk, computer and craft area to study - bless).
Here's a couple of cards I've managed to do today.
First my Less is More entry:
(I hope my flower is acceptable as a minimal embellishment.)
The musical script is a Kaisercraft stamp and the sentiment is from Paula Pascual.  The rose is cut from felt using a My Favourite Things die and the leaves are a Sizzix die.
I really liked the Fashion Divas cds Debbi Moore brought to Create and Craft as a Pick of the Week and actually ordered them - never bought from them before as I've seen so many bad comments about them on forums, but to give them their due - the price was good and it took just over a week to arrive so I'm very happy bunny.
Here's my first quick card:
And I made a box too:
Finally, a little card I made following a tutorial from Liz Armstrong at Pink Petticoat:
I used Pink Petticoat plain paper and cut the butterflies out on my Cameo.  I did the sentiment on the computer and my Sew Easy machine to do the stitching and added a bit of twine to finish.
I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.  It's so nice to get creative again.
Have a nice weekend and I hope the snow keeps away for you.
