Clean and Simple

This was the order of the day for the challenge at the Simply Less is More blog.

I don't really know how I came across this challenge, but I was blog reading the other morning and discovered it.. now, I always like clean and simple cards but I often think that they're not really upto much.

How do you feel about them?

Anyway.. I gave it a go, and here's my card for today.


The challenge was to focus on the sentiment. So, as the card was embossed white on white, I stamped the greeting in pink to make a contrast. **whoops.. just reread it and it should be one layer - need to try again!**

The card is showing a bit blue today, it must be the light... Slightly overcast and really, not all that nice at all!

Right.. I must make a move and get started on my quilling. See ya soon !


  1. Your card is beautiful. I did the same thing with my first card too, then rememered it was single layer. Hugs Rita xx

  2. It's a beautiful card...even if it is more than one layer. Just you can make another card. You'll soon find these challenges at LIM a bit addictive! LOL!

  3. Hi and welcome to Less is More
    Im so sorry to say that as this is one layer week, we require just that 'one layer' the card base. If you see on our guidelines, minimal embellishments are allowed but not layers stuck on the base of the card.
    this would be ok for any other week
    Haven said that your card is so pretty and Im glad to have seen it
    do hope you come back again

  7. This is a really pretty card, but I guessed you noticed too late that it should be One Layer! Oh well...give it another go...all us 'LIMettes would love to see it, I'm sure! :)

  8. It's definitely a very beautiful card, but the challenge was for a one layer card this week. Oops! xx

  9. Although all our challenges are for Clean and Simple Cards, not every week is for One Layer Cards... but this is that week.
    I'm glad you spotted it for yourself... this is a beautiful card, but sadly doesn't meet this particular criterion!
    We'd love to see your revised submission!

  10. Even though it is not one layer this is a beautiful card xx

  11. Lovely card, really pretty embossing x

  12. I like the way you used this embossing folder, and your card is great even if it isn't one layer and doesn't qualify for this week's challenge. The pink is the perfect touch! TFS
    Cheers, Karen

  13. Even if it's not one layer, it's still very beautiful!

  14. Lovely card and could easily be translated into a one layer style :)

  15. This is a beautiful card even though it hasn't matched the criteria for the challenge. The trouble is it is so hard not to get carried away.
