My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

25 February 2011

Less Is More

Afternoon peeps! Well the sunshine didn't last long did it ...... none today!

I've been wanting to enter the Less Is More challenge since it started a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had chance, so am very pleased that I can just manage to enter a card in time for this week's challenge.  However, I found it really hard to do a card with hardly anything on it ....... I used to make cards like this all of the time, but your techniques change don't they and I suppose you settle into a certain type, so this was definitely a challenge not to add anything else on to it LOL!


I'm entering it into the following challenges:-
Card Ingredients:-
  • Penny Black Brush Lillies Stamp
  • Brilliance Inks: Pearlescent Purple, Pearlescent Ivy & Platinum Planet
  • E-Z Rub-Ons
I would love to have your comments and thoughts on what you think of this - good or bad.

  2. Hi Claire, I think I would find it very hard to make a CAS card. But you've cracked it with this one. It's very pretty and elegant. Love the gorgeous flower image and how you've inked it. Halfterm? don't know about you hun but I feel like I've blinked and missed it. :o)

  22. Your card is so pretty Claire. I admit I have been hooked by the bug that has us all putting everything but the kitchen sink on our cards but at the end of the day....the simple cards are still my favorite. They always looks so elegant....like yours does!
