Less Is More: Week 73 Recipe
Less Is More today for the new challenge - paper piecing. I looked at every stamp I own ! Nothing 'spoke' to me, but finally I settled for the Close To My Heart A Tree set. I stamped it with Cocoa ink on Colonial White card stock, then on some Olive paper from the retired Lucky paper pack. The subtle pattern on the paper is lost in the stamping... The sentiment is from a retired CTMH set called Treetops. The olive grosgrain is from the ribbon stash. I am just not sure how I feel about this card after spending a long time to do something simple. Challenged.
