Less is More off the page

Tried several ideas this week for the LIM challenge but they all seemed to case other people's cards! I eventually decided to use a DL card and a large digital stamp printed on the bottom. The image is normally about 5" square. I can't remember where I got it from but it was a freebie! I then stamped a butterfly above the daisies. I like this stamp as it is so plain and looks lovely when painted.  I had a sentiment that I wanted to use but couldn't find the right place to put it as it looked wrong printed in a square. Then I had a brainwave (at least I thought so ) and used my Craft Artist to print the words out in a curve to fit around my stamps. I coloured the flowers with Brilliance Aurora, which is pearlised, and just some watered down aqua for the butterfly.
Hope you like it, thanks for looking :)

Just found out that One Stop Craft challenge is a CAS card so I'm entering my card there as well.

A fab card Valerie. I like the DL shape - it such a nice change from square (I'm stuck in a square phase I'm afraid). Love the digi stamp and adding the butterfly is perfect.Sue.x
