Less is More Challenge - week 6 - "Off The Edge"

Phew !!!, well thats my card finished for my first ever entry to any challenge, and I have chosen :-
'Less is More' week 6 - Off the edge, as my baptism of fire lol.

Silly me thought how difficult can it be, I spent a whole day going through my stamps trying to find one
I could use, then I spent the next day stamping it and trying to make it work. On the third day I realised
it wouldn't, so back to the drawing board ( or should I say stamp drawers) and then bingo !
I came across my creative expressions large Butterfly stamp.
So finally after many attempts (wrong card stock, wrong type of ink, should the butterfly be at the top ?
bottom ? left ? right ? smudges !!! ) Ahrrrrrrr !

Finally this is my Less is More entry Stamped on Whisper White card, with Versafine Onyx black ink,
the  sentiment stamp is from Dimension Fourth, colour on the butterfly wings is from a Violet Signo
pen, and lastly the bit of bling that I couldn't resist, and might get my fingers smacked for. Sorry ladies it is my
first attempt I will try harder next time.  lol x




 Yay..... managed it, a big thank you to Chrissie for  helping me in creating the direct link
