Minimalist Mum

Minimalist cards scare me.  I always want to put more on.  I was asked to make a Mothers Day card for one of the guys at work.  When asked what ideas he had, he said he wanted as little as possible on it.  That was my brief.

I stared with my usual white card blank and border punched two edges.  The inside of the card is covered in lilac design paper with faint writing on it from a pack of HOTP papers I bought more than five years ago (still working through that old, sorry ancient stash).  I have added organza ribbon and a sentiment as the main focus.

Resisting the urge to add more to it and a charm was a challenge by its self I can tell you.  I hope he likes it.

I will be entering this one for the Two Tone challenge at Creatalicious Challenges and for the Mothers day challenge at Crafty Creations
