God Loves You card

I noticed this wheat stamp sitting on my desk and knew it would fit the Less is More challenge to use three of something, perfectly.
 I picked up the stamp and quickly put together this simple little card. This adorable sentiment is from a set by My Favorite Things.
I love the look of embossing an image in white and then adding inks behind it.  I used a couple colors of some Distress Stain on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor paper. Let me tell you, I love this paper. I seems to word different from other watercolor papers and I love playing with it.  I usually spritz it with water first, that allows the inks to run just right.  I finished it off with three dots of Liquid Pearls.
The layout of the card fits the CAS(e) this sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
