Less is More - don't scrap it

Here's a second card for this week's Less is More Challenge, which is to use scraps for your card.  This one really hasn't made any impression on the scrap heaps in my craft room, the scraps are long thin pieces of card trimmed from cards.  The main image is stamped onto a card that was a one-layer card that went wrong.  Then I've added long skinny bits of card scraps to frame the image and embossed a line onto the card either side.  The stamp is from Little Claire, it is a birthday present from my dear blogging and real-life friend Val.  To keep the LIM look I haven't coloured all the image, just enough to give it a springtime look.
My card is also for:
Simon Says - anything goes
Stamp'n'Doodle - embossing
Crafty Bloggers Network - springtime
Squigglefly - spring is in the air
