3 Squares

Another new challenge (This year I think) is Less is More.   Recently I commented on how difficult I find it to leave space, but do love elegant cards.   A lot of blogland friends are joining the two ladies at Less is more and seeing their fabulous creations this week with just 3 squares joining in became very appealing.

This card designed its self in those moments between sleeping and waking this morning, althought there was a bit of a tussle over the idea of including a watermark!   Its all that space but restraint won out.

Inchie punch made the 3 squares down the side threaded the ribbon which ends with a little round buckle.   Greeting silver embossed and its done.
