Hey, y'all! Happy Friday!!! :) Hope all finds you well?!...I'm just swinging on in, to share a card a made for the current Less is More challenge. I was running a little close to the deadline, but happened to make it! ;)

So, here's my take!

Keeping things simple. For my background, I did a little stenciling. Once done, I was thinking to add some type of stamp over it. But couldn't figure it out, so I left it the way it was. Then for the tab underneath, I thought black would give it a nice 'pop'. But I still had no real idea what to do about a sentiment. Then as I went through my dies, saw some words and decided on 'hope'. And what better to have it in gold, yeah?!...

Thank you for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
