Less is More week 8

The challenge this week over at Less is More is to follow a sketch which is a great way of composing a card and it is surprising how many different interpretations there can be from the same starting point.  I took a cream DL card and added a punched strip using a Martha Stewart punch - this had a darker strip of card behind to show through the design.  A cameo was cut using Quickcutz dies and this in turn was mounted onto a shape cut with a Marianne die.  The addition of a simple stamped greeting completes this clean and simple card and it was interesting to use a tall card as somehow the 'white space' seems more with these proportions.
