Everybody's doing it!



Everywhere I look Less is More is the way to go, especially over at the new challenge blog! You see, I am all about the premise that MORE IS BETTER! But not in this case!
So, I did it. I did the Less is More way with pink, white & black! Wow, how I wanted to distress those edges, add some bling, buttons, ribbons & bows. ALL of my papers were calling me!!! But I said "no way papiere, NOT TODAY"!!
I figured with Valentines just around the corner, there were bound to be some engagements, right?


I got out my long lost Garden Whimsy set from SU (one of my first purchases 3 yrs ago) & the rest is history. I got the little ring embellies from Hobby Lobby in November.
On the inside I stamped just one heart, like the one you see here, in case I need it for a wedding card.

Challenges for my card:
Less is More- pink, black & white
Papertake Weekly- have a heart
A Spoon Full of Sugar- let's see some love

Great one Cor. Like you I wanted to add and add, and grunge and ink, but managed it. Love the little heart stamp.
Have a great day.

I'm so glad you resisted the urge to distress!! This is such an elegant and beautiful card. Love the flourish and rings! Fab!

Elizabeth said...

Lovely card and I do like those rings - so beautifully placed. Yes, clean and simple is hard on those of who usually throw in the kitchen sink for good measure but even I have had a go and it is all because of the "Less is More" site. Elizabeth x #79
