Less is More week 171-one layer

Hi everyone I'm back from our break in Derbyshire, more of that later. This week the challenge over at Less is More is for a one layer card with a theme:

Our ONE LAYER theme 
this week is 
We are delighted to announce our new 
Design Team Member.
We had the most astonishing group of crafters to choose from and the decision was exceedingly difficult.
However the Designer has been selected and we're sure that you will be delighted with our choice.
It is

I've missed crafting, it's been over a week but I have been busy making cards today as I have more birthdays coming up and next week Charlie is coming to stay for four days, so there will be no chance!! I may need another break after that:)
Anyway here is what I came up with using the SU Wetlands stamps set and Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks. The sentiment is a JustRite one with three pearls as a highlight.

Our break is Derbyshire was lovely, not an area I am familiar with but very scenic. We stopped for lunch on the way up on the banks of the Grand Union canal and watched the narrow boats floating by. Quite fancy that as a holiday! 
We spent a day at Chatsworth and bought lots of goodies at their farm shop and another day relaxing and going for walks along the river bank which ran past our house. Amazing house, huge rooms and very well equipped and we managed to imbibe a fair amount of wine:)

I am waiting in anticipation for the heatwave which is promised for later this week, I live in hope:)

Hi Val, so glad you had a nice time away. LOVE your card. That stamp set is fab and you have used it beautifully. The soft colour palette looks great and I like how you've done some shadow stamping. The enamel dots are a lovely touch too.
