This is my second attempt at a Less is More challenge. Last weeks being acetate and a toughie I thought that this weeks challenge being “off centre” would be a doddle ! No doddle here though ! As a newie to these challenges but a follower from afar I have come to realise that it is a lot more difficult than it looks. I admire all of you wonderfully talented ladies who week after week pick up the gauntlet and create such amazing pieces of art , because for me that’s what they are.
I would also like to thank everyone who took time to comment on my first entry last week for LIM challenge acetate I was overwhelmed by your lovely warm welcome and your comments all of which where truly appreciated.
Even though my card may seem simple it has taken me hours to try to get the right layout and the correct proportion of the images, not to mention the sihouttes the tricky little devils ! Then again you all know that because your here once again with your amazing Less is More masterpieces.
I do hope I am off centre enough and if I’m not please let me know.
Wishing you all a wonderful Easter
The LIM look defects me time and again love these both are elegant making statements. Fabulous work. XOXO Zoe

Hi Marie, I'm an admirer-from-afar of these Less Is More cards as I havent had a go myself yet, but I always think they look deceptively simply, so I'm not surprised to read that it took you hours of planning first. Such a challenge to get the placements and proportions just right, but you managed it….I love the first card in particular. Really great! coB
Two lovely cards and I know what you mean about the hours of planning! Carol x
Both fabulous cards, so stylish :o) I know what you mean – I always spend ages thinking, planning, shuffling through my stamps… takes longer to decide what to make than it does to actually make it! Lisa x

Hi MArieBoth cards are FAB, Id say the elephant one is perfect placement, as it is just right for off centre, rather than just at the sideFAB!Thanks so muchmandiDiva LIM
both great cards!
Both are perfect cards…..the images are great….you are becoming a master of the less is more challenge….can't wait to see what you create next week!!
The time taken and effort were definitely worthwhile, Marie. You have created two stunning cards!
Wow what a beautiful stylish cards. Love them both very much!
oh wow, both cards are really amazing!!!
I've been making cards for a couple of years now, and I still struggle each week to design something that I'm happy with! I LOVE your silhouettes…are those stamped or cut out? I can't stamp silhouettes in black without it turning out a bit speckled because the stamp won't hold a solid layer of ink….I just quit trying to do them!
These are 'simply' beautiful! The first one's great but I love the elephants. Really fab. x
Your silhoutte cards are wonderful. Tracey x
"simple" cards often take the longest! your cards are lovely and perfect for the challnge

Both your cards are stunning, love the black on white images.

Marie, beautiful cards in their simplicity!
