Less is More

The challenge today at Less is More is to put the focus on your sentiment.  Many stamp sets and ideas raced through my head as I thought about how to make my card.   In the end I settled upon one of my favorite stamp sets from Taylored Expressions - Discover Your Wings.  At first I was going to use this wonderfully large floral image from the set, but then I took a look at one of the gorgeous butterfly images from the set and decided to use that one instead.  I used two Memento inks for the card.  New Sprout to stamp the butterfly and Bamboo Leaves for the sentiment.  Finished the card off with a few green rhinestones.



Thanks for taking a peek..... and thank you to all the super sweet ladies who play along with Less is More each week and leave the most lovely comments!!  These ladies are the BEST!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions Discover Your Wings; Ink:  Memento New Sprout & Bamboo Leaves; Hero Arts gems
