Ever get the feeling you missed the point?

OK….now my new favourite blog at the moment is Less is More.  I favour the simple, clean looking card and indeed, search through my gallery and I think you’d agree… did I get it right with this week’s challenge?
The theme this week is ‘Pastels’.  This instantly put me in mind of Spring Wishes collection from Pink Petticoat!  Easy!  I created a lovely heart-shaped card, backed it with one of my favourite spring time papers in all its pastel-y beauty and finished it off with a topper from my lovely new Stampin’ Up stamps.
But as I stood back to view my creation, I’m thinking….card shape, busy background, ribbon and a border…..where’s the white space??
Alas, I am out of time so submit this card for your viewing.  I still like it….it gave me a chance to use my new blender pen and chalks from Stampin’ Up to and the heart-shape is a good one for Mother’s Day, don’t you think?
You do you reckon?
I thought the closing time was midnight!  Missed it!  Oh well….plenty of time to practice for the next one


  1. It's loverly!
    Love the shape and the lil stamp you used...might 'need' one of those :o)


  2. Ah even if it's not turned out CAS it's still a gorgeous card. I love that you've teamed those papers up with your new stamp, they go together very well! You've made me realise how long it's been since my chalks have seen the light of day. Hmm might have to dust them off!



I'd love to hear what you think....thanks for looking :-)
