Less is More week 106 One Layer

Hi everyone! Hope you're well!
Whoa! Where did those two months go?  It's been a long time since I last posted and tbh I haven't really missed it - it does makes you realise how much time is taken up by the whole blog thing and how much more time could be used doing other things. 
Anyways,I've gotten a new laptop and connected my little Epson printer to it so I've been able to get crafty again this weekend using the dining table in the lounge - not ideal really but better than nothing. (My daughter is still hogging my desk, computer and craft area to study - bless).
Here's a couple of cards I've managed to do today.
First my Less is More entry:
(I hope my flower is acceptable as a minimal embellishment.)
The musical script is a Kaisercraft stamp and the sentiment is from Paula Pascual.  The rose is cut from felt using a My Favourite Things die and the leaves are a Sizzix die.
I really liked the Fashion Divas cds Debbi Moore brought to Create and Craft as a Pick of the Week and actually ordered them - never bought from them before as I've seen so many bad comments about them on forums, but to give them their due - the price was good and it took just over a week to arrive so I'm very happy bunny.
Here's my first quick card:
And I made a box too:
Finally, a little card I made following a tutorial from Liz Armstrong at Pink Petticoat:
I used Pink Petticoat plain paper and cut the butterflies out on my Cameo.  I did the sentiment on the computer and my Sew Easy machine to do the stitching and added a bit of twine to finish.
I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.  It's so nice to get creative again.
Have a nice weekend and I hope the snow keeps away for you.
