Less Is More #2 for Challenge no. 33 Anything Goes

Here's my second entry of the day and my second card of the day toward my promised 10 this week. If you haven't seen my first one, go to previous posts and be sure to go to Less Is More. This is a great chance to get your feet wet if you're unaccustomed to making clean and simple cards. Mandi and Chrissie will gently give you advise how to improve your card and keep you on track.  You can't hone your craft if everyone just oohs and aahs all the time? Yes, your card is beautiful, however, have you answered the challenge the way it was written, or did you decide you'd maybe get the card size right and the theme, but didn't keep the white space showing.

In my case, my white space isSU basic gray cs, then SU riding hood red, then a scrap of white which has been dry embossed with an old Cuttlebug folder and cut using a square scalloped Nestabilitie. Perfect card for the less fussy personaliltly in your life.

I'm going to try for three today. So stay tuned and join us.
