Less is More for Christmas



The challenge at Less is More last week had me stumped so I'm going to look forward to the challenge favourites but this week its a sketch and hopefully this card is OK. Not up to the standard of my favourite entrant of LIM Brigit/Biggan if you haven't seen her work you need to go over there straight after me of course.
I picked this stamp up from HobbyArt possibly from The Craft Barn and its been gathering dust but I've realise I have a few lumpy Christmas Cards and not many CAS ones for the post. This card goes through the slot, phew thats a relief.
The Holly leaves are a Marianne die thanks to my friend Nikki helping me spend my money at Ally Pally. I dusted some green ink on the leaves before I took the die off. Personally I don't think the die works otherwise. Tiny red pearls for berrys but I needed a sentiment and I thought the cute tiny tags with some red twine would work pity about the dodgy writing.


In the end I made a total of three cards all the same but the rest had an extra blue mat.
