A Less Is More Sketch

Although I've never done very well with the challenges, I still like to play along with LESS IS MORE and this week is no different with their deceptively simple sketch.

Here is the card I made:

I did this in 6x4 format rather than the usual 6x6 as I think the proportions work better, but I expect I'll get slapped wrists for it.  

I used a strip of NitWits paper from the Bear Girls Too collection, cut with a scalloped Nesties rectangle and embossed the edges, I overstamped it with a Hero Arts butterfly border in Memento Toffee Crunch ink, and distress inked the scallops with the same colour, the punched butterfly is Martha Stewart from a scrap of Bazzil brown cardstock, I added heart shaped crystal gems for the body, and finally the sentiment is LOTV stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.

I really wasn't sure about this sketch to start with, but I am thrilled with the end result!

Hugs, Sxx
