Less Is More + All Things Unity Challenges

Hi all :-) Hope you’re having a lovely weekend :-)

I have just made this card using a new Unity set of stamps, I love them !! .

This set is called Best Wishes and Blooms I do like the CAS look but wonder if I should have used a subtle background paper instead of plain white ,,, it looks pretty nakey I think or maybe I should have sprayed the white card with Glimmer mist to give it some umph !! I coloured the flowers with Copics and added Star Dust and Copper stickles for sparkle. The sentiment was in the same set and I added some ribbon and gems to finish ,,, very simple !! The green card is SU Artichoke from LIM boss Mandi Smile

Challenges :

Less Is More ,,,,, Thank You / Congratulations

All Things Unity ,,,,, Get Felt Up ,,, meaning add texture ,, I added glitter, ribbon and gems !

Crafty Creations ,,,,, White Space

Thanks for looking :-) I REALLY appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I love how crisply Unity stamps stamp! I have a few sets but the postage from the States became a little prohibitive!
This is super Lols... that is a really nifty ribbon treatment and your image is just great and it's not too naked at all!
I love the touch of twinkle!

Very clever use of ribbon - will be 'borrowing' that idea - lovely card and fab stamps.
Not had chance to visit for ages but have seen your fab work in my little blog following area.
Take care

What a sweet card, love the colours you have used. I think the "naked" takes some getting used to for the less is more look - I think it is perfect as it is.
