Less is More...A Bit of Bling.

Hello folks.
Can I start by saying massive apologies for being MIA all last week. Work has been mega busy in the run up to Christmas and then ofcourse it was Alan`s birthday on Wednesday and mine on friday so we`ve had lots of visitors and time has just whizzed by. Lame excuse I know and I am sorry.

This week on Less is More is a theme.
This should have been a breeze but my mojo has done a runner. This is the third card I`ve made and the only one I`m remotely happy with. Not only that but it`s a rubbish piccy as well. The lights bad and no amount of fiddling with the photo editing has made it any better.
Really simple OLC.
The sentiment is by Papermania Silent Night set stamped in Versacolor Cyan and embossed in clear EP.
The snow flakes are a mixture of Inkadinkado and Anita`s stamped in Versacolor Heliotrope, Orchid and Mint also embossed in clear EP and I`ve added a gem to the middles.
It does look so much better IRL and I didn`t want to miss a week.

As I said it was my birthday on friday and I recieved some fabulous cards from the design team girls at St Lukes Charity Card Challenge. As soon as I get time I`ll take a piccy and show them, they are all gorgeous. What a fab bunch you all are.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  3. The choice of colours is fab. Lynne, and I love the ornate sentiment.

    The light has been pretty bad here today too - it takes almost as long to get a good photo as it does to make the card!
    Happy belated birthday to you and hubby - hugs, Sylvia x
