Less is definitely more....

Hope everyone is enjoying the Easter break, it's always lovely to have some time to relax, even if the weather is a bit disappointing! -and we do need the rain! Had a lovely family day yesterday, the Easter egg hunt was extremely popular with my small grandaughters! After everyone had gone home, and peace and quiet reigned once more, I had a little time to play, and made this card. I really wish I had stopped before I inked in the leaves- too late now!!
I am using the card for these challenges

Think we've all done that (gone further than we should) but the good news is that it's still a smashing card

Happy Easter

Beautiful card!! Simple, but still LOTS to admire - i love this! Why not make another card and DON'T colour in the leaves and do a "compare and contrast" - see which you like best - I'd love to see it myself! LOVE this great spot technique too! Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Creations Challenges! bx

It's a lovely card Chris, but I think I agree about the leaves! It's always easy to say after the event!
Thanks so much

Great card, I like the way you have haloed the main flower head, it really makes it stand out.

I don;t actually mind the leavs actualy. Id have not done the squares inside, making it more dramatic as a stand alone corner adornment
FAB card
