Less is More Week 263 - One Layer Card

Hi folks, hope you're enjoying your weekend.  I've mostly spent today having a bit of a craft room clear out and trying to get my stash a bit more organised - I don't know about you, but I waste so much time searching for things when I could actually be doing some craft.  

Anyway, I did manage to make a card for this week's Less Is More challenge, and this is what it is:

 and we would like to have you

The stamp I used is one of the first I ever bought and shamefully have never used - mostly because I wasn't sure how to colour it.  I decided to use my recently acquired Spectrum Aquas and I used a technique demonstrated by Crafter's Companion's Fiona.  I stamped and embossed the image and then used the pens by scribbling a small amount onto a craft mat and then applying it to the flower  I'm quite pleased with this first attempt.  The sentiment stamp is from a Stampin Up set.

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
