Less Is More


Here I am again! This is my second post today for my Buckwell Crafty Challenge post please scroll down.

Over at A Little Bit Crafty we have a brand new monthly challenge starting today with the theme Less is More.  Now I love these cards but I do find them a lot harder to do than other cards.


I have used some Linen card stock from Papermill Direct and printed the sentiment directly onto the card stock from my computer using a colour to match the paper.  The butterfly was cut out using a Memory Box die.  I added a bow using my Sue Wilson dies.


As usual, Paula has lined up some fabulous sponsors this month:

Hobby House - £10 worth of products
Whimsy Stamps - $15 Gift Voucher
Designs by Ryn - Circle Cluster, Raindrops, Leopard Spots

Please have a look at the other Design Team's work there are some fabulous projects here and remember you have almost a month to get your project in.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Fussy and Fancy - Thanksgiving/Thank You Card

Thank you so much for looking and the wonderful comments you leave,
