Creative Card Crew - Minimal

My apologies for such a late posting. Circumstances just ran away with me yesterday and I didn't get time to schedule my post, then I've been really busy at work all day. I'm afraid tonight is another really busy one so I'll be playing catch-up with all my commenting tomorrow. Hope you don't all fall out with me.

Here is my card for this weeks Creative Card Crew Challenge. The talented Linda really set us a great challenge this week:


I actually enjoyed throwing all the dps to one side and seeing what I could create with the least number things. So my card consists of one stamp, one flower and a few stick on pearls. You should see the amazing things the other DT ladies have made. There's some great inspiration for making your stash go further.

I apologise for the photo quality. I actually took about 25 photos of this card but I must have done something to the camera because half turned completely purple (the ones I took in sunlight) and the rest went black, white and grey (the ones I took inside during the day). This was the only one that came close to what the card looks like. I really must get a better camera or a new memory disk - I'm sure it's the disk that is the problem.

Basic Grey Two Scoops Heart Smudge stamp
Colour Connection handcrafted rose
Papermania stick on pearls in white and purple
Ink it up Lavender ink

You have rocked this challenge perfectly Sharon. Your card is stunning and definitley proves how few items one needs to make a very elegant creation. I love your stamp and beautiful flower and those little pearls are a perfect compliment.
