Less Is More - Take #2

I had so much fun making my CAS card for the Less is More challenge last week that I thought I'd give it another go this time.  This week's challenge is to do a One Layer Card using either a flower or a tree.  Now I have had this stamp for simply ages and have never found an opportunity to use it - until now.  So thanks Chrissy and Mandy for making me using my unused stash!
So here's the card I made:
The stamp is a Clarity Stamp as is the Snowdrop word stamp. 
I have coloured the image with metallic and watercolour pencils and have used a pale green chalk around the edge of the image. 
After I put the chalk on I used a cotton wool ball to wipe some of it off again and then sprayed it all with hairspray to seal the chalk.  I quite like this card and I hope you do too.  If you think you can't do CAS cards, you should give it a go - it really makes you think!
I shall also enter this card into the challenge at:
Instyle Stamps - Photo Inspiration (White and green)
Creative Cottage - Fabulous Florals

  2. This is a beautifully elegant stamp and the sentiment has been really carefully placed and stamped.
    The chalking on the right hand side of the flower is very delicately done.
    Thanks for joining our challenge and we hope to see you again next week!
