For You

This is the first card that I have made in over a week - I decided to have a good sort out in my Craft Room.  I ordered some new units from Ikea which arrived on Bank Holiday Monday and I have been re-organising ever since.  It's almost finished and it's lovely to see it so tidy - I'll share some photographs a bit later.

I have made this card for the current challenge at Less is More, the theme is White space but not WHITE.   I have used the pretty Modern Flowers 4 stamp from The DigiStamp Boutique and Kraft card stock.


I paper pieced the flowers using some polka dot papers from Pink Petticoat and used my Clearly Besotted Scalloped Edges die to cut a border from the same papers.


The twine is from my stash and the sentiment is a LOTV Tag stamp.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Challenge 270 - White space but not WHITE
Dies R Us Challenge 46 - Use Scallops
CAS on Sunday Challenge 80 - Flowers

Thank you for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated - make sure you check out my Birthday Candy HERE.

This is great. I love the soft colour scheme, and you've achieved quite a difficult thing in making a card with scallops and a tag but keeping it CAS and unfussy. Really well done. Fab card!
