Less is More Week #10 Sentiment Focus

A quick post to participate in another challenge this week. I'm on a roll!

This week's Less is More challenge is to create a card with the sentiment as the focal point. As soon as I saw this challenge I knew just the sentiment I wanted to use. It's from Stampendous and has not seen ink yet because it is so large that I wasn't sure what to do with it. Ok, I'll make it the focal point (duh!) I stamped the background with a stamp from Stampin' UP! in Memento Pear Tart (luv that color), added the sentiment on top of that with Memento Rich Cocoa, placed some Copic colored-to-match pearls in a triangle and rounded the corners of the Classic Crest cream card base. Done! And I couldn't be more pleased with it. Doncha just love it when an idea comes together better than you envisioned it?

Thank you for your visit today. Comments most appreciated ;D

Big Hugs,
Colleen
