My “Less is More” 268 Card


Well this one was an easy choice for me – as the theme for Less is More Challenge 268 is:

“Whats outside your window”

So I was quite literal with my interpretation.  By the way the background paper may look like it has a dark splotch by the sentiment however that is just a shadow from a bud or two.  I was inspired by the orchard budding out and since I have two relatives who are moving into new homes…

The background paper is from Crate Paper – the image fussy cut from an SEI paper, then I punched the hole in, then added another small hole to put the string into.   The branch is a bit of thick brown twine pasted into place and the leaves coming off of this I drew by hand.  The sentiment is a partial stamp from a Katie and co stamp.

I had fun creating this card along with my Sister in Law Judy!
