Penny Black Less is More


While I was using the Salutations Penny Black set for a sentiment, I notice the other stamps, there was a vase a couple of flowers. I remembered that Francoise Read did a similar set years ago, in fact I went and had a class with her using that set. I still have it but it wasn't sitting next to me on my desk so I decided to make a quick card. 
So I stamped the vase and the flower, both could have been stamped better but they were unused cling stamps and I always feel they stamp better after they've been used for a bit. I drew the stalk and leaves, thats why I used stamps my leaves look silly. Stamped the sentiment which looks like it hasn't stamped properly but in fact its the camera lying again, three pearls to finish. 
That means its another entry to the Less is More challenge. But once again after taking the photo I added a red mat.

One thing is the fact one of the most popular incentives for making use of your credit card is a cash-back or maybe rebate present. Generally, you get 1-5% back in various buying. Depending on the credit card, you may get 1% again on most buying, and 5% again on buying made on convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores in addition to 'member merchants'.
