I just couldn`t resist...

I`m sorry but the pull was just too strong. I really think I need therapy for this addiction, my willpower alone is not good enough. I promise myself faithfully each week that I will not get carried away but here we are, only Tuesday and I am about to open up to the world.

I have failed.

What have I done, you maybe asking yourselves, that is so awful that I`ve had to confess all to cyberland.

Well, I have given in to temptation....and made another card for the Less is More Challenge. Sorry folks, I did try...

I just picked up this stamp which is another of the Fancy Flourishes from Papertrey and it cried out to be stamped in black. Once that was done I couldn`t resist the urge to add some red gems here and there. The sentiment is from Papermania Chatsworth Collection and seemed the perfect choice to go with the flourish.
Once it was finished I just thought, well this has this weeks Less is More challenge written all over it, so I gave in and posted.
Can anyone let me know when the first session of Less is More Anonymous starts please, I need to put my name down.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

    By the way who's legs are they peeking out from under your card? do you have a little pixie who kindly supports as you take the photo. I've noticed his feet before and his trousers match the background to your cards, now that's dedication, LOL :0) xxx
