To Moon or Not To Moon

It's not time yet for Simon Says Stamps Challenge and it just wouldn't be right not to do a blog a post first thing in the morning so here's the cards I made using the Sketch from Less Is More that I've made so far. But has you can see from the title, one has a Moon and one doesn't and I'm not sure which one I prefer.
The trees are a stamp from Memory Box and I coloured the sky with Distress inkpads Mulled Lavendar, Dusty Concord and a bit of Chipped Sapphire round the edges.


The sentiment is stamping up and the tiny border is the top edge of a Martha Stewart border Punch.
See you back here at 2pm for with my Simon Says Stamps Challenge card.

Oh wow. Such a different style for you and it's fabulous. Love your stamped and inked background - I think I'd go for the one with the moon but it doesn't mean the other isn't equally as fab.
