"Less is More"

Hi Everybody!

I hope you are having a lovely weekend - I am as we have Cultural Day on Tuesday and most of us took off Monday so we have a 4 day long weekend! What fun! I did a bit of tidying up (hoovering, washing, ironing and all the rest of the boring housework), I am getting ready for a holiday which I will explain about in some other post, but the good thing is I found time to craft! I think this whole day will be dedicated to crafting! I have a pile of things I have to do and because of my recent "no mojo" situation there is quite a back log!
Anyways this first post of the day is for Chrissies and Mandies new challenge blog called "Less is More" . They want clean and simple cards, their first challenge is a color one - white, black and pink!!! 
The colors are not my problem but the clean and simple was as anyone who knows me knows I am  More then Less. I like rich colors, lots of embellishments, glitter punched edges etc, etc. (ha, ha also lots of good food, music and fun!)  So this was really a challenge for me....
Here is my card and this is as simple and clean as I can get.....
I looked at what others did and there was some lovely stamping on their cards....I only stamped part of the sentiment - love is handwritten....a punched heart a few stickers and a gem and some (not very perfect)doodled stitches.....various strips of paper and the nice ribbon I found in my ribbon box - it came as a sample from The Really Reasonable Ribbon shop where I bought some ribbon!
That is my clean and simple offering for today!
Have a lovely day - we have bright sunshine you can see all the mountains from my terrace as clear as a bell!
And believe it or not it is 16 deg C on my terrace on the 6th of February! A bit too warm for this time of the year but nice anyway!
Hugs to all
