New Goodies - So - Less is More

I hope you all had a good weekend and these horrible winds haven't done any damage to anyone.

I  am very fortunate and have had a lovely weekend.  On Saturday I went to Harrogate Papercrafts Show with friends Diane and Michell and had a great day.  It was lovely to meet up again with Christine and Lisa and also to make some new acquaintances - Joan and Maureen.
DD came home on Saturday, just a short visit, and went back today, so although I was itching to 'play' with the new goodies, I was banned from crafting while she was here!  After she left, the first thing I did was make a card!  and decided I would be early with my Less Is More card.
The stamps and sentiment are from the same Inkylicious set and I have stamped the dandelion twice in DI Bundled Sage, I cut a nesti oval in a 6 x 6 card and used this as a mask and although the colours look completely different, the oval is sponged with the same ink!  I added a sprinkling of Glamour Dust to the floating seed heads, didn't think it needed anything else - unusual for me! - think I might be getting there Mandy & Chrissy?

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
  Crafting When We Can - Anything Goes
  One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
  Dream Valley Challenge - Photo Inspiration

I would just like to say a huge 'HELLO'  and THANK YOU to my new  and  'old'  followers and I will be round to visit you.

That's it for now, and I hope everyone stays safe in these dreadful winds tonight.

Gorgeous CAS card Avril, I admire anyone who makes a one layer creation, they may look easy but I know from experience that they are more than difficult, your form is spot on.
Saw it on MIM.
