Take 3


When I got this Memory Box die and looked at the pic of the front of the wrapper I thought maybe this was a mistake and what on earth did I want this! But I was so mistaken is so delicate and perfect for what I had in mind for my Less is More card.
You have to take 3 previous challenges, oh that was so hard in the end I decided on.
Wk 52 Sketch
Wk 3 Spring
             Wk 55 Punches or Dies

I embossed my strip, used pearls to finish and a small floral punch for flowers with pearls again to finish. The leaves are a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and the sentiment is Stampin up, once again using a square punch for the end.
I was surprised how the pearls on the diamonds really made a difference and was pleased with my end result.

  7. Wow, Debby, this is a gorgeous card! I'm so happy to see this branch die in action - I've had it on my "want" list for a while.

    This post is chock full of smart new (to me) ideas. A MS snowflake punch for leaves? A little square punch for banner ends? Brilliant!

    Cheers,
    Susan
