Happy 5th Birthday - Less is More

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 'LESS IS MORE' - well can you believe it's been 5 years since Chrissie and Mandy started the Less is More challenge blog - I remember it well and I was so excited as LIM is really my style even though I do love vintage and grunge, but I'm just not good at it.  I don't blog much these days but when I do it's always this challenge I go back to.  So congratulations to the whole team and let's look forward to the next 5 years being as successful.

Here's the challenge to celebrate the birthday week:

It's a colour challenge of course and what we would like to see is 
(Accents in metallic or B/W are perfectly acceptable)

And here's my card:

 I used my TODO embossing folder and TODO butterfly frame dies for this.  I bought the machine when it was recently on offer on C&C.  I was a little dubious and nervous about ordering it as I read quite a few bad reviews on the website, but bit the bullet and went for it.  And I'm so glad I did.  I love this machine more than my Cameo (and that's saying something).  I use it every time I craft and I'm looking forward to the new additions Mel has promised for this year.  The sentiment is from one of Crafter's Companion Kimono stamp sets.

Thank you for dropping by.
