Winter Blues at Less is More

I cleared a small space in my craft room this morning and then filled it again making this card for this week's challenge over at Less is More. It's a one layer card using blues - take a look


I scored the card before masking off the top and the bottom, I then used sponges to add the blue ink. A darker blue was used to stamp the reeds and the birds and then the sentiment.
