Clean and Simple Card

So I have discovered Less is More and want to join in!!

This weeks challenge is a one layer card with script and I came up with this...

I used the papermania urban stamps as my centre piece, stamped in versamark and covered in a few different mica powders.

I tried to pick the butterfly out in brown, the 'love' out in gold, and just mixed brown, gold, copper and orange to cover the rest of the stamp.

Carrying on the ribbon obsession just a little at the top of the stamp with a blue staple for a contrast of colours.

And a repeated thank you down the spine of the card.  This stamp is a marie curie cancer fund raising stamp from a few years back.  Again I stamped in versamark and covered in mica powder.

I'd like to enter this card in to two challenges:

Less is More - one layer card with script


CAS ual Fridays - clean and simple with sentiment

 I had a 'helper' while I was crafting.  This is Billy...

She got a little too friendly with the stamps so was removed from the crafting area - much to her disgust!
