Less is More

Sometimes it's about keeping things simple.....The concept of clean lines and clear and simple spaces can sometimes mean so much more when there are no extra's to draw the eye away.  For this card I have used some beautiful  PP Perfect Papers in shades of brown and cream ( although I think they look a little blue on this photo!) I just cut them to different lengths and shapes, taking the third top one over the edge to create a bit of dimension, the words ' Less is More' ( and that's also their challenge this week) are computer generated and cut with a circular punch, couldn't resist a tiny bit of bling though with the little topaz swarovski crystal.  Only a few more 'sleeps' till my daughter and 3 gorgeous grandaughters (aged 6, 7 and 10yrs) arrive from Dubai to stay with us for a few weeks...sadly not often we get all 6 grandchildren together, exciting and lots planned, including outdoor picnic and theatre show at a local National Trust Property (rain rain go away). I have explained to the girls they will only need swimwear, wellies and umbrellas!!!  They actually can't wait to dance in the rain and jump in puddles as they don't see rain throughout the year.....I told them....that's cos we have it all!!        Hope you like my card x


  1. Oh dear, you rgrandchildren over from Dubai are likely to feel pretty chilly with the way the weather is in the U.K. but I'm sure you will have a wonderful time with them.

    Your card is simply fabulous too
