Less Is More


I love this challenge as it makes me think outside me comfort zone of layers.  This week it was to do a one layer card with 'all in a row'.  I resisted the urge to do the Christmas Tree's in a row which is what immediately springs to mind this time of year.  I don't often do Birth Cards so decided that I would run with that.  So here is the link to the 'Less Is More Challenge', so you can all have a go.

For this Card I used the following products from Stampin Up

Card - Whisper White
Ink - Poppy Parade, Marina Mist
Punch - Tiny Tag
Polka Dot embossing folder
Bakers Twine
Stamp - Baby Steps
