Less Is More ~ neutrals card

*As it's my second blog post of the day ~ please click the blog header and scroll down for the Creative Craft World challenge!*

I couldn't resist playing in the Less is More challenge today, as my favourite cardstock colour is kraft!
This card came together pretty quickly. I cut the bird layers with the Cameo and layered them on SU naturals ivory cardstock.
I doodled the dots and lines with a chocolate chip SU marker and the sentiment is
Technique Tuesday - 'Ali Edwards loving words', stamped with chocolate chip ink.
The extra layer of kraft card came about because I stamped the sentiment totally wonky directly onto the card base (and it's a clear stamp too!) so I had to try and cover it rather than lose the card altogether......


Just a close up of the wings, leaves and heart.

Thanks for stopping by today :)
