Back again!

Yep, me again, 3 days in a row and still more cards to show! Lets see if I can post everyday, although maybe I shouldn't tempt fate while my mojo is here or else it'll run away again! Anyway, I hope you're having a good monday so far! Today's card is a clean and simple one for a couple of challenges. Inspired by this weeks Less is More challenge of One Layer and Inking as I'm a total Copics girl and they do not work on one layer cards! So I needed an idea to get some colour in, I made it by masking off the strip - although not brilliantly so don't look too closely ;-), then blending different Distress Inks. Then stamped the flower twice side by side over the top. Although now I look I realise I've kind of wandered away from the sketch! Hopefully it's still ok! Thanks for looking!
I'm entering into these challenges:
Clean & Simple - this sketch, combined with...
CAS-ual Fridays
Less is More - One Layer & Inking
Cute Card Thursday - Clean & Simple
Supplies-
Image - Hero Arts 'Flower Meadow'
Distress Inks - 'Peeled Paint', 'Shabby Shutters', 'Crushed Olive', 'Stormy Sky' & 'Boken China'
Twine - The Ribbon Girl

Thought you might like to know that you inspired me with your red poppies card so much that I had to make one too which I have just posted. Thanks for your inspiration! :)
