Better on a Monday, take 2 ...

... one day, two cards ... today just keeps getting better!

Once again I am inspired by Chrissie's card for this week's "Less is More" challenge - I'm happier with this effort than the one I posted on Sunday!  I managed to find a stamp with an inspiring quote sop thought I would give it a go.

I used:

Stampin Up - Faith in Nature stamp set
Uniko Studio - English Country Garden: Butterflies stamp set
Versafine Onyx Black INk
Distress Inks - Ripe Persimmon, Mustard Seeds, Spiced Marmalade
Stampin Up - Baked Brown Sugar.

I'm also going to enter Addidcted to Stamps and More Challenge #136 where Anything Goes.


Edit:  Popped along this evening to enter the new challenge at UNIKO Studio where Anything Goes.
