SK card,and 3 squares

Hi guys,well,you all did me proud with my craft barn comments you are so kind my next post on there will be Saturday,they are really chuffed I got so many comments,even my daughter has left me one on there as she has just got her computer. Oh bless her fancy doing that she is good to me.
Anyway thank you all again so much I think I got round to all of you and thanked your all personally if I missed anyone,out please know how gratefull I am just hope i can keep it up.
Right one of the challenges i have been meaning to try is,clean and simple and this week it was to have 3 squares,I am like lots of you who like to put lots of embellishments onto your cards,but I managed to come up with this.
I know its not great but I really wanted to support the girls as I know,chrissy,makes some stunning cards.
So this is mine,I have used my Nesties,then stamped,3 butterflies,with black versamark ink,then just added some paper to the card,edges with ink and that is it.

Told you it was not great,anyway this is the other card I have made,using my prisma pencils,papers,from my stash,SK image,made some flowers,and twirls,with paper,then just added some ribbon to finish.

I also want to welcome Clare Happy days to my blog,bless you hun,for following me and for also leaving a comment too on the craft barn blog. You guys,are all awesome,I was so glad to see some comments on there,as was worried,encase no one,commented,he he what a chump I would look like.
Anyway challenges,

Hi Cheryl,
Thanks for your kind words and welcome to "Less is More".
It's really hard to put just a little on a card if one is used to many layers and lots of embellishments. With just a few things on a card, positioning and proportion are all important.
I love your butterflies, what a great stamp, you could actually get away with less DP too as we like to see a bit of "white space" on the card, however the one you used is fab.
I hope you'll join us again next time!
