Less is More


I decided to make another card for the Less is More challenge, trouble is I left out the pearls and I'm still not sure whether it less is more enough.
I was searching for the crackle stamp for the egg for the Simon Says Stamps cards on Wednesday and found a couple of stamps that make this gorgeous flower. Its very well inked since I had them for a long time  but when I put the flowers together my hubby told me "lovely poinsettias" which wasn't the plan at all. So I made a couple of Christmas cards instead.
I'm sorry for using the Sizzix embossing folder once again especially has I think its retired.


I've made several of these flowers, so I had to make another card. It look like a box but it isn't just gives the idea. This time I put pearls on my lattice and the top is using the sizzix die from Stamping Up.
I'm hoping to get into the craft room today and tomorrow I'm off to MJ All Day Crop. I also want to do some more colouring since I've got some Sassy Cheryl as well as some new Mo's images.
