Less is More

is the name of a new challenge that starts today hosted by Chrissie & Mandi and is definitely one I will be entering as I love the CAS look. Their inaugural challenge is for cards using Black, White and Pink I've also been able to combine it with another challenge from One Layer Wednesday where their requirements are an image, a border and bling.


Pink is not a colour I use a lot, and therefore I didn't have a pink inkpad and had to rely on a pink marker pen to ink up my Poppy stamp by Papermania. However when it came to stamping the border,(the smaller butterfly stamp also by Papermania) the detail was lost so I reverted to the old favourite-Versafine. The sentiment was stamped with this also and is by SU., and I found some cerise pink gems in my stash to finish off.

Before I go I must mention a lovely award I received recently from Andria. Apparently the award goes to little known but worthy blogs so I am very pleased to accept it and am passing it on to the three following ladies.

Georgia-Kitty Krafts
Eunice-Cruising & Crafting
Toni-Sweet Pea's Story

One last thing, apologies for the apalling photo and distortion to the picture, I've no idea what's causing it. I used my daylight bulb lamp as usual but this snap looks like it was taken in the black hole of Calcutta! roll on the summer.

ttfn,
Fiona x
