Less is more - Three Squares - Take Two

OK I have to admit that I do like to do things right if that is possible, I know I don't always achieve it so will go back and start again. Earlier I made a card for the Less is More challenge this week which is three squares, now I wasn't 100% happy with it and most of the comments echo my thoughts. 

I decided to have another go but have done this one a little differently, once again the sentiment is computer generated but so are the squares. I found it a lot easier to get the squares in the right place using the pc, once I had printed the base out I used a stamp that I've had for quite a few years, I then coloured the flowers with promarkers. Now once again I'm not 100% happy as I could have placed the 1st flower a little further to the left  but I feel it's a great improvement on my earlier attempt.

  1. I have to say I do prefer this card to your previous one, but what really pleases me is to see the dedication to getting things right which seems to be prevailing amongst our number! I think it's wonderful!
    We shall become the most proficient lot!
    This card looks lovely and fresh with the colours you chose.
    See you next time!

  8. I love this one too Jenny, I find it difficult to choose between the two of them. The only thing wrong with the first one was the sentiment placement - which wasn't wrong exactly. And this one the flower placement - again not obvious unless you are looking for it.

  9. Lovely! Like the stamp you've used here and will deffo have to give the placing on the PC a try instead of juggling trying to get things absolutely straight by myself!

  10. A nice 'clean' card! we really are our our own worst critics, especially with these CAS cards - not easy.

  12. Nice work. I think you got the balance just right. Well done for having another go...! It is knowing when to stop - struggle with that too.

  13. Looks fine to me and is nice and simple. Don't get too picky because you will stifle your creativity and you can't get ointment for that!
