Apologies for the bad blogging - what with the Olympics and Paralympics, and going away on holiday and and and..... I seem to have lost the crafting bug!!   So today I'm trying to make amends and make something.

Here's a card for the Less is More challenge week 84 which is to make a One Layer card with Foliage. 

I've used an Oak House Studio solid stamp of a Sycamore Leaf inked with Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and finished with a Hero Arts sentiment.  I'm sure it needs more, but I have no idea I'm just going to post it and let you all decide!!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Hi Elaine, I have been totally absorbed with the Olympics and Paralympics too, loved the closing ceremony last night......I think your card is perfect for the challenge, simple and clean design. I so wish I could do LIM! Crafty hugs, Anne x

  2. How elegant and charming is this card, Elaine. Seems like you have the crafting bug again. Glad that you were happily busy watching the games.


  3. Elegant CAS card, Elaine. I don't think it needs anything else! Sue x

  4. This looks kinda like a sycamore leaf to me Elaine... maybe a maple... as the mountain ash has a compound leaf.
    Whatever kind of leaf it is, it's a great card.
    Thanks so much

  5. Lovely simple card Elaine. Don't think it needs anything else. Understand how you have lost yourself in the games - they have truly been outstanding. Hugs, Buttons x

  6. A beautiful colour on this leaf, and a wonderful heartfelt sentiment. Gorgeous in it's simplicity.

  7. Hi Elaine, Sounds like you've been having fun then :0) Super card, simple and fabulous, love it, Gay x
