Pink Heart

Good evening everyone. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Today I would like to share with you a really simple card that I created for the Less is More challenge. The challenge was to use one layer include a heart and use minimal embellishments. Well I don't do well with one
layer challenges but hey ho you have to come out of your comfort zone some times.

I started rummaging around my craft draws looking for a suitable stamp for this challenge and found right at the back this beautiful floral heart by PSX stamps. I have had this stamp for years and it hardly ever sees the light of day. I am definitely going to us it more often now!

One I had found my center piece I just knew what I was going to do with it. I took a plain white D5 card and punched the bottom using the Martha Stewart garden trellis punch. I don't think that you can see in this picture but I have scored 2 lines for the ribbon to sit between. A little pink distress ink and a touch of stickles and I was almost done. Last but not least I added a heart and key charm to finish off.

I hope your like it.
