Less is More - week 22 - Blue

Well I'm making up for the couple of weeks of not blogging and 'less is more' ing today. Third card for this week's challenge is using, yes you guessed it - paint strips 'borrowed' from a local D-I-Y store. I thought it would make an ideal new home card so I punched out house shapes from the piece I cut off the side and then did a handwritten sentiment. Base card is a 5inch square plain white.Nothing else, as the saying goes  - it does what it says on the tin! - new home.

For anyone who hasn't visited yet, do check out this blog - it's brilliant!
