Less Is More

I am back today with a couple more challenges to show you.

The first one is for the Less is More Challenge & the challenge was a one layer card off the edge.
After reading the challenge i new straight away I would use the Extreme Elements stamp set & Extreme skateboard. the layout is very similar to a card I showed yesterday for the Clean & Simple challenge.

I first tried making the card using Crumb Cake as the base but wasn't happy with how the solid stamp was stamping on it (whisper white is definitely the go for solid stamps). So in the end it was Whisper white base with Crumb Cake & Early Espresso.

I really love how it turned out & it's another male card for my stash.

Happy Stamping
