Less is More Week 12 - Off centre

Hi Diva and Lady LIM - one of your LIMettes here entering your next Less is more challenge - and another great one at that!  So this week we have to be off centre and so here is what I've come up with today:-

I've borrowed one of my friend Shirley's stamp sets and had a little play with it today.  I stamped the image with worn lipstick distress ink for all three elements - don't know why just fancied doing that!!

I'm quite happy with white space - it doesn't freak me out - but what I do find hard to resist is adding a bit of sparkle!!!!  As you can see above I've added some stickles glitter glue to the rose - and yep it's not even dry yet........... LOL

Here is a close up of the sentiment as in the main photo you can't read it that well.  I was tempted not to use the ribbon but I do think it finishes off the card nicely and helps to place the sentiment and the rose below.

Looking forward to popping over to some of the other entries for this week - and I was shocked at how many have entered already!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend LIMettes!

Happy Crafting

Nothing wrong with sparkle Tina! I rarely do a card without it lol
That's a super stamp, all I wonder, if you don't mind me saying but i think the ribbon could have been under the rose, so in effect you swapped what you;ve done, I think the squareness of the ROSE, would have sat on the ribbon better.
However, a great job, loads of yummy white space...perfick!
Thanks so much
Diva LIM

Tina, the one thing I find difficult on these challenges is to "STOP" adding to the card! LOL! You've done a beautiful job with this challenge!

Hi Tina

How lovely is this.

Gorgeous image and I love the sentiment very much.

I think your ribbon finishes everything off just perfectly (along with the sparkle of course LOL!!).

Hope you are enjoying the Easter break.

Love Jules xx

A little twinkle and bling is perfectly acceptable on Clean and Simple cards... it's all the layers that need to be swept away!
This is charming... great stamps!
Thanks so much for joining us once more!

I do envy you Tina as White space is so frightening to me. You manage to carry it off beautifully.
I know where to come for ideas for simple and sophisticated cards.
