Colouring the negative ...

Snow in April ... why?  There are many things I can live without and snow in April is one of them!  Thankfully it hasn't settled in Oxfordshire and now the sun is shining and the sky is beautiful blue.

Today's card is inspired by this week's challenge at "Less is More" - the theme is 'take three stamps'.

I used the following:
Uniko Fun Flowers
Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Magenta

I'm entering the following challenges:

"Less is More" #272 Take Three Stamps.
STAMPlorations Theme and Sketch Challenge

Penny Black and More April challenge Birthdays
