Less is more...

that's the name of a this brand new challenge blog and I'm looking forward to playing along regularly as I definitely prefer the clean and simple look.

The first challenge is a colour challenge, using pink, black and white and there are lots of fabulous entries already, there are obviously a lot of clean and simple folk about...

My card mainly uses items I got in one of my bargain £5 Craftwork Cards goody bags, with a few gems from my stash.  The ribbons was 'recycled at source' - I stole it from the packaging of a Christmas gift I bought for a niece.  She'd have just thrown it in the bin...!

I've just noticed that 1 of my layers is a bit skew-whiff on this pic but don't have time to take another photo tonight - please forgive me!

As well as the Less is More challenge I'm also going to enter this into the Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Clean and Simple

Vintage Heart

I don't really 'do' Valentines cards but there are a lot of love and heart-related posts out there in blogland right now...

But hearts don't just have to be Valentines, right?

I've used  Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose papers, on a Craftwork Cards scalloped card blank.  The scalloped heart was cut using my Craft Robo Lite, and the edges 'inked' with a Promarker.

I'm entering this for the Shabby Tea Room challenge - I know, no blogging for 2 months and I enter 2 challenges in 2 days...get me!

Forever Friends

This is the first card I've made from the Forever Friends Black and Gold CD-Rom bought from Create and Craft.

Annoyingly the CD-Rom won't install on my laptop so I had to dust off the desktop PC to make the card. Its a very simple card as I wanted to see the quality of the printed images before spending too much time on 'designing' with the CD. The main image was printed as a single layer from one of the background papers (I think!) and the sentiment and corners cut out separately. The card base is a 6" square scalloped card from Craftwork Cards.

I'm entering this into the Forever Friends Challenge, where the theme is 'Stars'.
