A Winter's Kiss









Well it is Saturday again and time for this week's Less is More challenge which is a Recipe 'Pick A Square'. I have chosen to go for the centre and used my Marianne Creatable 'Snowflake Die'. I have stuck it down with sticky paps to make it stand out on the card and have added some 'Icicle' Stickles. In the centre I have put a white card candy with a litte bit of Stickles on that too. I printed the sentiment from the PC directly onto the base card. Not sure if the sentiment should have been a bit bigger!!! If you have not tried these challenges get over to the Less is More blog and see what Mandi & Chrissie have for us each week. It's great fun and gets you thinking. I look forward to Saturday mornings to see what they have in store for us.
