You're one in a melon - KIS9 and Less is More110

Good morning and Happy Sunday!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It is a damp and rainy day here in Chicago, melting away the foot of snow we had earlier in the week.  Our backyard is like a swamp!  I keep reminding myself Spring is on it's way! :)

This card was created based off of this week's theme at Keep It Simple (KIS) - fruit,  and Less is More - a one layer card using spots and stripes.  Oh my goodness that is a challenge for me!
I have never made a one layer card - talk about nerve-racking!
Needless to say, it was a trial and error project! ;)

Cardstock, stamps and ink from PTI, baker's twine from The Twinery and misc. pearl adhesives.

Thanks for taking a peek - off to post my card!  Enjoy your day - Cathy xxx :)
