Less is More week 67 one layer

Well the sun is shining here today, lovely blue sky and warmer in the garden than indoors! Thought I'd get in earlier this week for the LIM challenge, so less stressful :o) No easier though, this week  Chrissie and Mandi want a

ONE LAYER CARD
This time we have the stipulation to
USE THREE STAMPS
not four, not two... but 3!

I don't mind a one layer card but sticking to 3 stamps was difficult! Which three to pick? Anyway I came up with this and may have another go later in the week if inspiration strikes!


By the way you don't need glasses, I shadow stamped the sentiment :o) 
The stamps are by Creative Expressions and the sentiment is an old SeeDee one. The inks are all SU and I added a few pearls on the blossoms.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and if you leave a comment I'll pop over to see you too!
