Thank you

Hi all, hope you all had a great weekend and for those of you interested, enjoyed the wedding on Friday. I intended to watch the service, but ended up in front of the TV from 7.30am until 1.45pm.  What a wonderful day it was!

Well, my lovely daughter has gone back to uni so I have taken the opportunity to sit at my craft desk and had a little play.  This is the card I made. 

Originally it was going to be my entry into this week's less is more challenge, but I'm not sure it really fits the CAS look (I'm going to enter it anyway - I'm sure the ladies will let me know if it's too OTT for the challenge), so I've decided to enter it into the following:


This is what I used:

Silhouette machine for the frame, leaves and flowers
K&Co background paper
Computer for the sentiment
Antique Linen Distress Ink for inking the edges of the frame and flowers/leaves

Just before I go, I would like to congratulate the very talented Kerry on becoming the guest designer at Less is More - it's very well deserved.  Kerry has always been a great source of inspiration for me from the beginning of my cardmaking.  Please visit her blog if you get chance, it's well worth it.

Hope you like it!
