Sometimes Less *IS* More

It's Wednesday! And, today is the return of the Unity Junkies challenge after a short Christmas break, and tomorrow is the return of HIP HOP Thursday!! (Isn't your week looking better already??)

Kim (aka doodersmom) is hosting this week, and challenged us to make a SLIM (Sometimes Less Is More) card: A card base (you can layer if you like), an image and/or sentiment, and one embellishment. Normally, these kind of cards make me nervous...but I tried to channel some Julie Ebersole, and 'embrace the white space'. And, I {love} how it turned out! *grins*
I started with an 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of So Saffron CS, which I folded to make a 4 1/4" square card base. Then I stamped 'Whateva' from Unity's December KOTM 'Little Reminders' in Old Olive ink. Using blender pens, I colored in the sentiment with Brocade Blue and Really Rust inks. Then, I attached a layered flower from Making Memories' Chloe's Closet line, and added a strip of DP from the same line to the top of the card. (okay, that's two embellisments, but since she did say that we could layer if we wanted, I'm counting that little strip of paper as a 'layer'! *wink*)

I'll be back in just a bit with that snowglobe card I promised earlier, so stay tuned!
