Less is More Challenge - Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way

This week's theme for the lessismore challenge is to use designer paper in a CAS way.  A great challenge as always from Chrissie and Jen and it gave me the opportunity to use my new Fairy Lights papers from Pink Petticoat, which is currently on offer at half price from the boutique (a bargain as it's stuffed full of papers, christmas tree images and sentiment).  

Here's my card:

While I'm here I thought I would just add this card I made using the Sizzix Flip-It die I bought at the NEC.  It was such a bargain - £16.99 for 11 dies in the set.  I used some HOTP paper and some other dies to try a Vintage style - a look I really love but I'm not very good at.  I used several different stamps including Kaisercraft Music sheet, HOTP holly and Paula Pascual number:

I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of this set and may even invest in other shapes. I'm sure they'll be just as good with a CAS look.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
