More for Less Is More!

This is my third entry for the Less is More colour challenge. I think I am starting to get the hang of this clean and simple look and  I no longer feel the need to reach for a paper bag to breathe into! lol! It is hard to know when to stop though, I mean how little is really enough? You don't want your card to look  like you haven't made any effort at all do you? It is funny that I have to work harder at making these kinds of cards than I do the ones with all the layers and bling! My copics are feeling sad and neglected!
Sorry for the photos it is really dull and dreary here today...overcast and rainy but warm!
Card Recipe:
Cardstock: white cardstock
Paper: -
Stamps: Hero Arts Doodle Flower Patch, Stampin' Up Flight of the Butterfly (Sentiment)
Inks: Versafine Black Onyx
Embellishments/Other: Kaisercraft pink pearls, Stickles cotton candy

Thanks for looking...have a great day!

This is another super card Susan. There are no hard and fast rules about what is enough... it's a case of what is pleasing to the eye... and this certainly is!
I'm glad we've got you hooked on Clean and Simple.

Great job on these CAS cards, they can definitely be harder to make - mistakes show up :)
