Less is More - Oval

Quick post before heading off to bed.  Had another go with the sponge, inks and Clarity stamps for the Less is More challenge.
This weeks challenge is to use an oval, so got the spellbinder die out again and used a big and juicy and adirondack ink to create the back ground.  Used a couple of Clarity Stamps and kanban stamps with Stazon jet black.  The image is mounted on foampads and scored some lines on the card as I thought it looked a little plain.  Still in two minds if I should add a sentiment, but for now will leave it blank.

Hope everyone has had a fab weekend and thank you for stopping by :)

Great card - think the scored lines are a brilliant addition, just gives the card an extra "something"

Wow, your cards is gorgeous. I really like the scoring; it's simple but adds a nice touch.
your coloring and layout are so wonderful that a sentiment isn't necessary.
Well done and TFS

This is gorgeous. Love the colours and the stamps you used for this. They set each other off well.
As for the rose hips I have used, I don't think any variety matter. The ones I use are a very old rambling rose, been there about 30+ years, which grow up the wall (the photos are at the top of the wall). Fairly small white flower and this year they did extremely well!
thanks for popping by.
