Less is More...

I took a trip out to London's flower lover heaven yesterday - Columbia Road Flower Market.  Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity.  It was full of the most beautiful roses, tulips, lilies and exotics in every colour imaginable. I came home full of inspiration to make my card, using some of my favourite things - paisley, pink and paper roses.

It's for the sketch challenge over on the Less is More blog.  I'm a 'Less is More' kinda girl, and plan to join in each week but time usually runs out for me, so I'm really pleased to have made it this week! :)

  6. I haven't been to the Flower Market for many years, although I did used to live not too far away from it. It was always a lovely place to visit - and I believe there is now a lot of trendy type shops there too - I really must try to re-visit it.

    Your card is simply gorgeous!
