New card for Less is more

I have been following this challenge site "Less is more" where you are asked to make a simple clean card within the given criteria. This weeks challenge is to put your image in one of the squares of the card(4 corners and center). I chose to put my image in the bottom right corner.
For my card I used Tim Holtz Spring stamps and light and dark green distress inks to stamp the shrub and accented it with Smooch white pearl inks. The butterfly is part of my napkin collage kit and is decoupaged onto the card. I actually like how simple the card looks. I'm think I may have to partake in this challenge more often as it is a nice break in between more complicated projects.
I have a few other projects I also completed today but cannot post them as they are still drying. I will post them later in the week.
I did have all intentions of taking a pic of all the cakes I baked and posting it but as always I ran out of time and was packaging them for the bake sale at the very last minute. The Party in the playground went well on Friday. Thankfully we had decent weather with only a few sprinkles throughout the evening.

Here is a shot of some of the dancing with the band. They have this great Irish band that comes to play. There was lots of food, games and festivities all evening. Everyone had a great time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening. Angela
