Little Church in the snow

Another entry for Less is More challenge, this week it is one layer card 'off the edge' and no embossing. I used a digi image from Just ink lined, I used watercolour pencils to colour it, the sentiment was computer generated, and the border was drawn in Microsoft Publisher, one more card for my Christmas box!
I welcome criticism as by hearing what other people think I can improve my cardmaking.
Also for the challenge at One Stop Craft challenge - clean and simple
and Simplicity - Out of the box
and Paper Sundaes - Keep it Simple

  19. That is gorgeous Jose. I bought myself some Timeless Britaim stamps just after this Christmas at a very reasonable price, intending to do much the same as this card for next year. Where in Somerset are you? I've no one close to me that crafts...........It would be good to keep in touch!
