LESS IS MORE - 1,000 ENTRIES???? (CARD 2)!!

Hi lovely bloggers - this is card no. 2 today (yes - two in one day - that has to be a first for me)!, so please scroll down if you would like to see the 1st one!
At LESS IS MORE Chrissie and Mandi now have 1,000+  Fab. Followers, so someone suggested it would be fun to aim for 1,000 entries into this week's challenge! PHEW!! Hence my two cards being posted separately!
As from tomorrow, I won't be around for a couple of weeks, as hubby and I are going in search of that big orange thing in the sky! So I am wishing Chrissie and Mandi good luck in advance, oh and if any of those Blog Candies in my sidebar are coming my way - please hang onto them ladies - I will be back to collect!!!

Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up.
Postcard stamp - Crafty Individuals.
Sentiment - Wendy Vecchi Nature's Art set.
Vintage Photo DI.
Flowers coloured with Wild Honey and Spiced Marmalade DI, applied with a
Cut-n-Dry Nib. A soft touch of Crushed Olive on the leaves.
DI applied with Cut-n-Dry foam onto Sequin waste (found this in the kiddies' craft section at Boyes store - very cheap)!
Hope you will all join in - as long as your card is Clean and Simple, Anything Goes!
See you soon - love to all ~
