Another week flies past....

Good afternoon everyone! I can't believe it's Sunday again already! -where DID last weeek go!
I've had a lovely lazy day today, playing about with inks and getting nice and messy! I wanted to make a card for this weeks Less is More challenge which is a one layer card -wings, and I didn't want to use butterflies(!!)  birds, fairies , angels, I wanted to make a card with a dragon for a change, so I made this one ... I had loads of fun , stamping, embossing masking, painting etc BUT it is impossible to get a decent photo!

The card is actually black, not dark blue, and I really love the sentiment - I think it's very sound advice!
Well after this, as I had time- and loads of stuff already spread all over the kitchen as well as my workroom (how can I make such a mess making one card???)- I made this one (back to the butterflies!!) The green panel was made using a mask, not a stamp, embossing and then inking through a hand cut acetate mask. Then I stamped the black butterfly twice (judiciously placed to cover the green inky fingerprint......) 
Better go and clear up the mess now! Have a good evening!
