Less is More

Morning All
A fabulous day her in Gib 21degs....hows the weather where you are...we are off into Spain to do some Geo Caching a Treasure Hunt with a GPS.
Less  is More this week is a SKETCH ...Chrissie has given us some wonderful inspiration....
so here is my CARD...I have used   Hero Arts cling stamp i have had this stamp a couple of years uninked called Elegant Weeds...the Background is Pan Pastels....they are so easy and creamy to go on...then stamped on the top..then cut into Three sections...and die cut a Butterfly......
Thanks for looking .....
Enjoy your day....
Hugs Sylvie xx



This is just stunning, love the card you have used, the texture is just a perfect background for the beautiful panels and the butterfly is a fabulous topper.


Beautiful card, Sylvie. Those pan pastels give a lovely effect.

Gorgeous Sylvie the image and the colours are so beautiful. Caroline xxx


Wow this is stunning Sylvie, I love the style, very elegant. Have fun in the treasure hunt and good luck :) Xxx


Absolutely stunning Sylvie. It's not 21 degrees here, not even close unfortunately !



What nice subtle colours... and I love the way you used this stamp. I have that stamp as well and never would I have thought of being so creative. See, that is what Less is More does to us.
And by the way, I would be a double millionairess if I didn't spend so much on craft. In Indonesia, where we stay presently, I land up paying three to four times the price. Temptation always takes the better of me.

Happy crafting,


Hi Sylvie,
Thanks for becoming my follower... I am trying to return the kind favour but for some reason blogger is playing up. I will try later.
Thanks again,


This is superb Sylvie.. That image is perfect for spreading across the three squares.
Thanks so much

Hi Sylvie, lovely lovely card, I do like how you've split the image up into 3 parts. The Panpastels background looks great too.

My friend told me about Geo Caching, sounds fun and interesting. Enjoy yourself. I'd definitely swap weather with you today, it's starting to get veeeeery chilly here, lol.

Oh my goodness Sylvie - this is breathtaking! I love the way you've separated your sections and the butterfly is perfectly positioned. Good luck with the Geo Caching! Vicky x


Hello there :) I love your card-so pretty-and very clever too :) xx

Beautiful card Sylvie! Love the stamp you've used and the soft colours of the Pan Pastels.

The weather here is rubbish - just as you know it is, lol!!


Your card is gorgeous Sylvie. The delicate colours of the Pan Pastels make a lovely backdrop for the stamp.

Hi Sylvie! Beautiful card you've made this week! Looks like you all have beautiful weather too. We've had a bit of a cold snap here in "sunny" Florida! To some people I guess 45°F is not "cold", but to me it is!!


Oh what a beautiful, gorgeous card Sylvie.

Hi Sylvie

Weather here a tad chilly today (Tuesday because I am late catching up with you!!!). Hubby had to scrape the windscreen of his car before he could pull off the drive!!! Eeeekkk!!!

Loving your card very much. The chopped up image is a great look.

Hearing a lot about these pan pastels. Might have to add them to my ever growing list!!

Have a good day.

Love Jules xx


Wow ... this is so beautiful!
