Seeing Double 2nd Entry

Well this is my second entry for the Less is More Challenge.  The stamp is from Stampin Up and I stamped it in silver and then in black.  I added the green at the bottom of the trees with green ink pad and a paint brush. The Butterflies and sentiment are from a Penny Black Collection 'Teddy & Co'.  Not really keen on this one but I think it fits the challenge.

I think that the reason why you are not so keen on this card, may be that you may have rather too many elements Maureen.
I think that if the trees had been the central feature they would have been enough...even without a sentiment. What do you think?
Thanks for joining us again.

Hi Maureen
I think it would have looked better without the butterflies, it would have drawn our eye to the trees, shadow stamping is so effective
Good to see you
Thank you

Those are such dainty butterflies! I really like the green you added to ground the beautiful trees. ;)

It's very pretty, but I sort of know what you mean. I think the trees are lovely and would have made a lovely central image. Lovely though!

And thanks for your lovely comment on my card! x

I love the use of silver and black for the tree and the way you've grounded them with the green ink. Vx
