One Layer Off the Page Card

Hey everyone. Sorry about my short but sweet entry yesterday, I had to leave for the hospital. It was just a follow up appointment in the ENT clinic where I have to go every six months because for those of you that don't know, I had major surgery in 2006 as I had thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid and lots of lymph nodes removed from my neck and I also ended up having an emergency tracheotomy. My regular surgeon was off on hols yesterday but the doctor I saw was OK, although I would've liked him more if he'd used the numbing spray before he put the camera up my nose and down the back of my throat LOL!! Anyway, it was all good.
The card I was to share with you today is for the 'Less is More' challenge blog. This challenge seems to have taken the card making world by storm and nearly every blog I visit is entering, so I thought I'd better get in on the act!! My card is for Week 6's challenge, which is to make a one layer card with the theme 'off the edge' and here's my card:
I've used Elzybell's stamps coloured with promarkers. It's funny, as I was making this card, I kept wanting to add something to it, but from what I've read, everyone feels the same way, their first time LOL! Now I've been looking at it for a while, I kinda like it. What d'you think?
Right, I'm off to make a lime and white chocolate torte for my friend's baby shower tonight. I should be back later cos while I had my Elzybell's stamps out for this card, I started stampin' up a storm! And I've got my baby shower card to share with you too - and maybe some pics to make your mouth water!! Laters!!! xx
