Homespun flower

I'm happy to say that I have had time to enter the current Less is More challenge. The theme is Homespun. If we're honest many of my cards have a homespun look but this time I did it on purpose.

I used Inky Doodles stamps (I do have other stamps) for all of this. The flower has a stitched edge and I wanted to the background to look like fabric so I used the tiny button flowers to stamp in the grid. 
I tried to stick to the same colours and managed to find a similar thread, then a button and a bow and it was done.  
I hope the rest of you are managing some time to yourself now the worst of the festivities are over. I've planted part of a hedge and made cards!


  1. Love the pink/lilac theme throughout and it's great to see a horizontal DL card too.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

  5. I'm sorry that I'm so late in commenting but having various visitors over the holiday period made me rather behind!
    This is so sweet and perfect for the homespun theme!
    Thanks so much
