Less is More this week Chrissie & Mandi have set us a sketch to follow. I have use a cream pearlescent card and added the sentiment direct onto the card from my PC. I think the sentiment could have been a bit bigger though!! The image is from Habico and I have stamped and layered it onto cream and silver pearlescnet card. I decided not to put any colour on the image as I think it is okay as it is.

Less is More 1000 Challenge. The flower was handmade by Lee [aka KitchenGodess on Docrafts or Lee from A Wee Bit of CraftyLoops]. She calls this flower a 'Large Floating Meringue' and it is absolutely stunning. The sentiment is printed directly onto my white base card. I hope it is okay for this challenge.

Less is More we are trying to get 1000 uploads for the Anything Goes challenge. Here is my card for this challenge. I hae used a white base card and punched out some hearts with a Woodware's Punch. I have added a layer of gold matt card behind the hearts. The sentiment is from Country Companions Lovers Lane set and I have stamped that with a gold ink pad. The ribbon is from my stash and I made the bow with my bowmaker. I hope this is not too much for a CAS challenge.

Less is More Challenge. The stamp is from Stampin Up and I stamped it in silver and then in black. I added the green at the bottom of the trees with green ink pad and a paint brush. The Butterflies and sentiment are from a Penny Black Collection 'Teddy & Co'. Not really keen on this one but I think it fits the challenge.

Less is More Challenge this week I used this stamp to make my card but have to own up to making a mess the first time round as I smudged the ink. I turned it over and made my card for the challenge as you can see in my earlier post. I then cut it up to make a topper for this card. I layered it onto some mirror card and then added it to an embossed A5 card. I added some peel off corners and some silver card candy to finish it off. I think this is better than wasting my original card - don't you?

'Less is More' this week the challenge is 'One Layer - Seeing Double' I have used a base white card with a stamp that has not seen daylight for a while. I have stamped it twice and coloured it with Promarkers. The Sentiment is a stamp that has a flower at the start but I masked it out so that only the sentiment shows up. I have added a ribbon from the Dovecraft range as the card looked a bit bare. I hope this is okay for this challenge.

Don't get much crafting done with PC being on the blink so I am still using my laptop. Its time for 'Less is More' Challenge again and I like the idea of the 'Metallic' theme. I have used a white base card and I have rubbed my silver ink pad all over the edges. I have added a white layer embossed with a Snowflakes Embossing Folder and a Merry Christmas Embossing Folder. The ribbon is from Dovecraft Range. I have used a silver foil baking tray for the Snowflakes and they are cut with a Marianne Creatible Die.
