Less is More Week 10 One Layer Challenge - Sentiment Focus

Ok.
The guilts got to me.  One of my cards in the post for the OLW challenge last week just so happened to work for the Less is More Challenge from last Saturday.  So, I edited that post to add the LIM challenge.   But, is that really fair?  Me thinks not.   But, HUGE thanks to all the kind folks from Less is More who visited my blog and commented.  I am greatly appreciative.

So, to get the guilts to go away, I made another card.  Just for the Less is More challenge.  And, then what happens?   What I ended up doing also worked for this week's Make it Monday challenge.  Nope, not gonna do it.  Ended up making 2 cards that I needed to make anyway...one for Less is More, one for Make it Mondays.  Will post that one later.

The Less is More Challenge asked us to make a one layer card using a sentiment as the focus.   I made a mask from a Nesties heart, sponged Memento Rose Bud ink, and stamped the sentiment from My Sentiments Exactly! on shimmery (sorry you can't see that) Curious Cryogen White cardstock.

Thanks for peeking!
