Less is more challenge card

Hiya Everyone,

I have been soooo busy this week as I've had some cards to make for CM & P magazine and I've just got some some stuff sent from Joanna Sheen to make up a new batch of samples for the March C&C TV show. I've just made this card in about 20 minutes as the deadline for the less is more challenge closes shortly and I've been putting off making it all week Lol.

The image is from Summer Driggs "sweet springtime" freebie digital kits (see sidebar for link to her fab site) - I have just added a touch of crystal stickles glitter glue to the blossoms. The backing paper is from a Pink Petticoat kit called "spring wishes" (in colour pistachio). The card is actually just the wrong shade of green basic card that I coloured the edges of with my pear green promarker to match up better!
Sentiment done on computer - font is akaFrivolity.

I think it looks quite effective seeing as it was a quickie!

I will enter this into the following challenges:-

Less is more - spring
Allsorts - Inspired by nature
Stampin sisters in Christ - Use green
Forgotton scraps - Spring or flowers
Crafty sentiments - Spring

Thanks for looking!!!
