Less Is More

I missed the challenge at LIM last week - in fact, I think I missed most challenges last week!
So this week - and all quick posts - I have actually managed a few challenges.
The challenge at Less Is More this week is 'The colour of your Nations Flag'.  I have chosen an easy option of red  on white, and used my new Hero Arts Poppy stamp. I inked with Black Versamark and heat embossed with clear powder on a  3" x7" card blank.  Coloured with red Promarkers and then stamped the Thanks sentiment.
A very quick card, but no doubt when I go to link it in and see all the other creative entries I will probably think looks too CAS.
I am also entering this card in the Allsorts Challenge - Red

As I said, a quick post,  DD and I have had a 'girly day' shopping and lunch and tonight we are all going to the cinema to see - 'Harry Potter'.

Thanks for looking and I  hope to catch up with everyone on Friday when DD goes back.
