Crafty Cardmakers - Challenge 1 "Flowers"

Good afternoon!

Today I have a very simple card. It is a flower for a special friend and I am entering it into a brand new card challenge called Crafty Cardmakers.

I hope you like it, even though it's quite plain.

Thank you for visiting and taking a look.

I love this card. Too often I am tempted to put everything except the kitchen sink on a card, when in fact I prefer a more simple style.
This is great.

What a beautiful card Clare. So simple yet so elegant. That flower is lovely.

That is a gorgeous card, not plain at all.

I TRY to do the less is more thing but more often than not put too much on them. I'm learning to stop......

Thanks for taking part in our 1st Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and I hope we see you again soon :)
