Less is More 12, A Recipe!

Hello there all, I hope you're having a great holiday weekend whatever the weather.
I made a card for the Less is More challenge




This week is a recipe
  OFF CENTRE
We are looking for cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance, which doesn't necessarily mean gems in all four corners, or any corners for that matter.












Well,  I've been searching all day for the right stamp to use and finally chose this because I've never used it successfully before, fingers crossed this time:0)
I may just have to have another stab at this one, have fun TTFN :0)

The morning after......................................
Just thought I'd add a picture of the mess I left, I was posting at 1.30am, ridiculous!!!! it's even worse on the floor, better get it sorted now ! LOL

Stamp of lady in chair, Inky Antics by Monica Lee, called 'On the phone' appropriately enough!
Background trees by Memory Box, Swirly tree border
Text stamps, Darcie's 'Shell We Celebrate?' And Printworks 'Small Tag Lines'

Susan said...

HA! Glad to know I'm not the only messy scrapper! I love that image you used..but I don't know that I would have added the trees...I'd have just had the cute chair image popped up on the card. Anyway...it's still a fabulous card!

Brilliant Card. Hugs Ritaxxx

Chrissie said...

This is a great card, what a fab image!
You know I nearly always agree with what Mandi in her critiques of cards and I have to go along with her again... I think it would work well without the line of trees.
Another great submission!
Thanks a lot!
