New home card ...

Sunshine and deep blue skies ... a great start to a Sunday, a bit misleading though as there is also a strong wind that is cold .. but who cares!

I continue to be sidetracked by the lure of wool - I'm trying to master the art of crocheting, with limited success at the moment but I remain determined to conquer the skill.  Today I thought I would start off on a more positive note and create a card for the "Less is More" - it is back to One Layer week with the theme of New Beginnings.  I decided to create a new home card.  Using a die and some distress ink this is how it turned out:

At least the beautiful sunshine improves my photography skills!!

I used:
Sizzix Tim Holtz Die
Distress Inks: Festive Berries, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimon, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Dusty Concord.
Clearly Besotted Many Messages Stamp Set

I will also link up to Virginia's View Challenge 11 - Clean Slate.
