Less is More Challenge #2

I just came across this new challenge blog, Less Is More, and I thought I'd enter into their challenge. It's ages since I've entered any challenges, due to my not having enough hours in the day..... lol. I love the idea of 'Less is More' for cards and sometimes the cards turn our so much better than cards with lots of embellies.
The theme for this one is a 'One Layer Card' to include a tree or a flower.
Anyway, enough of my waffle, here's my card for this one.The image stamp if from Little Claires, and the sentiment, which I thought was perfect for this image is by Debbi Moore. (my new employer....lol) I coloured the image with distress inks and used a nestie to emboss the frame around the image.

YAY Karen, I too have recently discovered the joys of white space on my cards - liberating isn't it? This is just lovely.
