Less is More Week 4

The challenge this week on Less is More is a 'recipe' to use three squares so maybe not quite so daunting. I have chosen to use  papers and a stamp from Papermania Pampered Pets collection.  The faux postage is from Forever Friends Good Life and the sentiment is a free stamp given on the cover of the current Creativity magazine.  What can I say - the dog was stamped  onto plain card using Distress ink and brushed out with a water brush; the squares were all cut using Nestabilities, sponged around the edges and arranged tastefully (I hope!!) onto a plain white card. - there is still some white space but not as much as last week.
