Less Is More - Week 12 - Off Centre

Happy Easter!

I haven't had much time for crafting or blogging lately but now I have a week and a half off work so I'm planning to spend some time making things. Yesterday I completed the mammoth task of tidying my craft table and now it's lovely and neat, with plenty of space for making things!

It's time for another challenge over at Less Is More. This week it is a recipe card and the recipe is "Off Centre". Chrissie and Mandi are asking us to make "cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance, which doesn't necessarily mean gems in all four corners, or any corners for that matter". This is my card:

I've used some design paper from My Mind's Eye True Blue collection, and the stamp is by Basic Grey, stamped in VersaFine. I couldn't resist adding some brown/white baker's twine as well.

Nice and easy!

Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend and having some of the glorious sunshine we have here!

Great card for the LIM challenge! I especially like the twine - the way it extends all the way across the front, as opposed to the patterned paper. Perfect!
Cheers, Karen
