Less is More - Kraft and Creme

Hello sweet bloggers,

Less is More is celebrating it's second birthday - a very happy birthday to you and thank you for making us feel comfortable with white space on our cards. 
Here is my card for their challenge which is all about kraft and creme.
The kraft paper is hand made from wood, yes from wood and it is of Indonesian origin. I hand tore it to give it more character. Added layered Sizzix heart diecuts after sponging them with distress ink in brushed corduroy. The love stamp, I am sure you are bored of, but I am still loving it. It is from dear Lynn. I tried using another stamp but it just did not stand out as much. The printed paper is fancy gift wrap and the pearls are from my stash.



I will enter this in the following challenges as well:

Wish you a happy Sunday,
Monica

Very pretty! Love the kraft paper, and how neat that it was made from wood! It has such a pretty texture.

As all paper is made from wood, I wonder if it's a special kind which was used to make that paper, it looks lovely whatever.
I love the stacked hearts.
Thanks so much Monica

Hi, Monica. Not sure why, but today's card reminds me of a tropical batik on fabric, even though it is with the tan colors. Looks great, and the layered hearts look gorgeous! TFS

This is a great card. The sentiment looks like it is written in sand - like the old song "Love Letters in the Sand". I like your patterned paper and pretty butterfly.
