very thoughtful

I'm loving this weekly go at clean and simple.

This time I used two pieces of scrap to block off the top and bottom sections of my card blank. I stamped Hero Arts 'colour me flowers' randomly in the middle section. I then used my watercolour pencils to add some colour. To finish I used a fine black marker to define the stamped area and added a sentiment from the 'sending smiles messages' clear set by Hero Arts.

This card is for two challenges....

Less is More....one layer

Creative Inspirations.....plain and simple
