Breaking the rules

Here's a tiny card which blatantly ignores the Rule of Thirds! Who cares, anyway? 

This is a "tidying up" card - thrown together while clearing my crafting supplies away, using scraps and pre-stamped images. I found the Fleur de Lys, rounded the corners and mounted it on some scraps, then stamped the swirl on a Love Note and assembled. It was quicker than finding the right folder so I could put the scraps away!

Stamps: Carte Postale (p57)
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Mellow Moss
