Less is More


Things haven't been going according to plan in the craftroom and when I saw the Less is More Challenge was to be Dance and Music, I knew this little darling was in my pile of coloured images. 
I decided to use a sketch that I used many months ago and is a firm favourite for a CAS with a difference. The papers I think are Magnolia that I've had difficulties cutting into them and I placed the ribbon just belwo her feet so it looks like she is standing on it.
Of course you must realise the sweet image if from Mo Manning, she is called Odette. Looking at the card now I wish I had paper pricked round the edges but the way things have been going wrong lately I wasn't going to push my luck.
To be honest I blame the weather its be so dark, dank and dreary and it feels the air has been sucked out of the atmosphere. I did see a glimpse of the sun this morning so fingers crossed it will be a better day.

  6. Adorable card Debby.

    We have some sunshine at the moment but not sure how long it will last. The air has been so heavy the last few days and despite some doozies of thunder storms, it doesn't seem to want to lift.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.
