LIM week 51-cut it out

 and the inside...
This week the challenge on Less is More is "cut it out". I used a Waltzingmouse nestie friendly stamp, and cut out the middle section with the die it designed to fit. Not had a go at doing this before so it was a great way to get me using the die with the stamp. the sentiment of the front is also WM but the one on the inside is from Papermania. The image on the inside is from Crafty Indviduals and is part of a set of four scenes. I used Tim Holtz distress ink pads Old Paper and Antique linen to get a subtle effect.
I'd also like to enter the card into the Clean and Simple challenge over on Charisma Cardz challenges and "out with the old" on the Stampin for the weekend challenge.
I am going to a craft workshop tomorrow which Leonie Pujol (from C&C) is holding - can't wait.........
