Less is More!

  Morning to you all. Nearly threw the towel in with my Less is More card this week!  My card caused me so much grieve! Everything went perfect till I came to the sentiment,  hate stamping straight onto the card. Messed up twice so next time I did it the other way round, now why didn't I think of that in the first place!

Would of made life so much easier if I had done this first time round, a simple quick card that should of taken 15-20 mins, took half the afternoon lol!

Used Linen card, embossed in white with  Hero Arts Flower Swirl Vine. Stamped Hero Arts Antique Engravings butterfly onto heat resistant Accetate Morningand embossed with embossing powder, cut and added white pearls. Sentiment from SU Flight of the Butterfly stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. - Take Three Challenges
Week 15 [May 14th] One Layer Embossing
Week 29 [Aug 20th] Theme Things that Move
Week 6 [Mar 12th] One Layer Off the Edge (No scored lines)
