Pick a Square...Any Square

I've been dithering all week about which square to choose for the Less is More 'Pick a Square' challenge...but, I couldn't put it off any longer, and in the end went for the centre. I've used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps...'Dream a Dream', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I cut it out using one of mmy Nestie labels die, then before I removed the die, inked around the edges to create a sky effect with a blue chalk inkpad. The sentiment stamp is from the CCSR set by Papermania.

Challenges for this card:

Beautiful and so elegant Helen.

Sorry I was so mean making peeps choose. Truth is it sounded like a good theme at the time until I came to make by own card and realised it was way to difficult to choose.

Thank you for sharing with us at Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge this month, good luck and look forward to seeing more of your lovely work.
