Two challenges one card

The current challenge at Less is More is to use a coloured card base with a one layer. You also need to link the card to the AAA Cards challenge too.

For my card I used a Hero Arts flamingo stamp - which I stamped and then scanned to my PC and resized - I then printed it onto the card base along with my own text. Then I used a Lavina stamp to add the bull rushes with a little grounded by me.

Yesterday I went with a friend to Chatsworth House, it is fairly local to us so we've both been a lot of the years but at the moment they have a Fashion Exhibition on  covering five generations of Chatsworth. Rather than being a separate exhibition it is dotted around the house and it has been done so well. We arrived about 11am and a while later we both thought we could do with a sit down - looking at our watches we realised it was 1.45pm! we hadn't even finished the tour! We were keen to get started so we hadn't had a drink or anything since very early morning at home. I wish we had known there was so much to see, we could have had a drink first. Here are some of the photos.

I absolutely love pink and black together and you've done computer magic sizing your flamingo just the right size! Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
