Flower Squares

I've been following the Less Is More challenge blog since it started but this is the first week that I've made a card for one of their challenges.  The theme is 'three squares' so I've used one of my oldest Little Claire stamps (mine is a wood mounted one which shows how long I've had it!) and coloured the flowers with Promarkers.  It look a bit of time to get it all lined up - just goes to show that less isn't always easy!!

As well as the Less is More challenge, I'd like to enter the card in the following:
Stamp Something - flowers
Totally Gorjuss - black plus one colour

  11. Helen, this is so cute! The more I see of this shape card the more I want to try it! What is the exact measurements? What size envelope does it fit? Adorable card!

  12. I love this tall, narrow card! What a cute way to use three squares, especially with the sentiment in between like that. It works perfectly! I'm going to have to try some different card sizes.
