Is that all there is? ...

I'm sure many viewers, when seeing this card, will be thinking ... 'Is that all there is?'.  Perhaps I should explain that I started with an idea and a 5 inch by 7 inch piece of card ... this is all that is left.  My original idea just would not work no matter what I did!  I'm sure I cannot be alone in experiencing this problem, so in an attempt to avoid Sunday afternoon being a complete waste of time I created this card:

The sentiment and ribbon are gold.

The design and layout couldn't be more simple - it is not what I set out to create but is OK.

I had the following challenges in mind when I began the process:

"Less is More" - it's recipe week and we need to include a tag.
Addicted to CAS - key words are Black, White and Gold



  1. Don`t you just hate it when that happens. I`ve so many good ideas that look rubbish when I`ve finished so`re not alone.
    Your finished card however is super. Very understated and definitely `Less is More`. Love it.

  2. Lovely card Elaine, keeping it simple always makes a card look more elegant anyway :)

  3. Love the simplicity of your design

  4. It is more than enough Elaine - not what you had in mind perhaps, but simply lovely!

  5. Elaine, this is so clean and elegant! Sometimes I need to stop while making a card, and it will be just enough. Sometimes my plans bring the result I don't like. Sure, I struggle too, but I always think of it as learning :)

  6. This is CAS perfection Elaine.
    Crisp, clean, elegant and perfect and as ever you rock that Gerbera stamp. Love it. Thanks for playing along at Less is More

  7. Glad it's not just me. Things rarely turn out as I expect but I hate wasting time too. Your card is beautiful and elegant.
