Don't you love it when the idea in you head not only works but it actually works out better than you thought. I love how this turned out, the Woodware patchwork balloon stamp designed by Francoise Read is perfect for a mans card, the stitched clouds from the same set means they stand out on the white cloud. I've paper pieced the balloon, even the zig zags and the strips in the last panel.
Since the challenge on Less is More is for neutrals and I've been sitting not literary on a Stampin Up pad of neutrals it almost broke my heart to pull out some pages. The scallops is a Stampin Up punch too and so is the sentiment with my awful doodling but it wouldn't stand out unless I did that.
I'm posting another post with another LIM card, well while I had to those papers out I might as well use them.
