Less is More Challenge #224 : hello sunshine

Less is more challenge #224: hello sunshine.
I made a one layer card. Used a circle die to make a mask of the sun.
Sponged that with Distress inks ( mustard seed and fossilized amber).
Stamped the cherry blossom tree in Memento ink and the sentiment too.
Added 3 pearls as blossoms.

I thought about adding a bit of blue for the sky, but I really wanted to keep it as CAS as possible.
Even the sentiment seems  a bit big on hindsight..;-)

Yesterday Whilst putting plastic in the recycling container the metal flap of the container squashed my hand, or finger tops actually, one finger in particular is all blue and bashed up, swollen and stiff...but it won't keep me from it's a bit more challenging now...anyway...
