Off the page

My second post for today.
This is the card I have made for the Less is More challenge this week - which is "off the page" one layer card. I resisted the urge to use my large SU medallion stamp - because been there done that loads. So I got this SU set out which I haven't really used since Victoria's class last year. I really like how this turned out, especially as I had to stamp direct to the card.
I'm also entering the card into:-
Stampin' for the weekend -springtime
By the cute and girly - springtime
One Stop Craft Challenge - clean and simple

I was in a bit of a lavender mood today (well it is my fav colour) as I bought this when I went shopping - half price in Past Times! In fact all the jewellery is half price at the moment.

oooh Lynn I think you've pulled off the challenge perfectly! I love the colours and I miss that stamp set so much now that it's retired too.

Fabulous find with the necklace - very you

I have this set too Linby, and curiously I often seem to want to colour it in similar colourways.
Great to have you join us again with another great submission!

It's funny, I got the big medallion out too and then decided to have a change.
I love how you've got the flowers going off the page but then put the whole one in too, it's a beautiful stamp and the colours are so soft and pretty.
