Regular readers of my blog will know that I have a real weak spot for tree stamps and in fact own a small forest of them.  So you might think it a bit perverse of me to go with the colour stripes and not the trees for this week's Less is More Challenge.  The colours reminded me of a My Minds Eye 6x6 pad that I own called Fiddlesticks.  I also have rather a lot of 6x6 pads! 

I really must get some hexagon dies, I wanted to use a lot of small scraps of the papers.  Instead I turned to my trusty bow die-cut and added a Waltzing Mouse sentiment stamped in London Fog grey. The card is a 5x7 tentfold.  I may still make a tree card, watch this space...  :)
My card is also entered for
Simon Says - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Eureka Stamps - clean and simple


  1. Wot! NO trees?
    This looks terrific Anne, but I shall eagerly watch this space for a forest, a wood or even a copse!
    Thanks so much

  6. I want a hexagon die too! LOL!! Lovely card - the "ribbons" really look like ribbon but they are paper right? Fantastic CAS card! Thanks for joining us at Eureka Stamps this week.
