One Layer Card

This is my 4th attempt at an entry for the Less is More Challenge :-) I kept getting things not off the edge enough or too much LOL !  in this one the wind HAS blown the wisps off the edge..... !! I have discovered that 'Clean and Simple' does not mean Fast and Quick!
I am really enjoying learning how to make these cards, there are great tutorials which explaine really well how to do things in easy steps.

I could not get my stamps, ink and embossing powder to behave! On this months Complete Cardmaking Magazine'Complete Cardmaking CD' there are two free digikits.  I used some digi images of dandelions and butterflies from the Flora & Fauna kit in Serif Scrapbook Artist and re-coloued the images in tones of dark blue. There is Glamour Dust on the dandelion head but the sparkle does not show up too well as it is a dull old windy cold day in Toulouse even Toby my dog is pretending to be asleep so he does not have to go outside ! The sentiment is from a Papermania set which I use a lot.

I would like to enter: Less is Moore ONE LAYER CARD - OFF THE EDGE
