Shock Horror

OMG this weeks Less is More is really hard, well it is for me, this card is almost naked! Not sure if this is right for the challenge but I'm sure the girls will let me know.
I had to add the ribbon, the brads and pearls otherwise it would have ended in the bin where the other two went!
The clock  and sentiment are both from Stampin Up.
Well this was certainly a challenge not sure I can dare to look at the next weeks till I get over the shock.

OMG!! It is very naked... it must of been hard for you to stop your self from adding more. LOL, it's still a cute card.

Pauline said...

Ha ha Debby you're so funny!! It's a hard concept to get the head around if you're naturally a fussy n fancy girl (like me!) but after a few goes it gets better, I promise!! You did a great job on this, I haven't done one yet this week, oops time is running out! xx

Jane said...

Lovely card, I think it would have looked fine without the ribbon as well. It isn't easy to stray from your usual style I panic at the thought of lots of embellishments lol xx

Anne said...

Faye said...

It's very different for you, but it's lovely. Thanks also for the macro tip, which hubby claims he thought I knew when I gave him the inquisition about it!! x

Chrissie said...

I love the fact that you overlapped the sentiment across the image... super idea!
Your card is dressed to perfection!

Debby, you are not alone! :)

I had a binful of waste last week, trying to make a splash of red for the previous weeks challenge - never finished a thing, and felt I had wasted a whole day and a load of card! :D lol.

Your card if fab though - I love the sentiment and the brads on the clock face. A very classy card,

good luck! :)

Hi there Debby, well I'm impressed a real diversion for you and by golly you managed a brill card. I love the simplicity of this and I think Joey was right, you could have carried it off without the ribbon. Naked cards? whatever next LOL :0) xxx

Sharon said...

Oh Debby this would have been so so difficult! Especially for us girls who love their flowers and embellishments :) I think you've done a wonderful job!

massofhair said...

Fantastic sentiment and perfectly complimented by your stamp. imho the bling on the top right hand corner is not necessary as the rest of your card is so gorgeous it doesn't need it.
Perfect for this weeks challenge, stunning card:-)
