Not as I planned!!


Well it's Sunday so it must be the Less is More card, this week I knew exactly what I wanted to do after seeing the sketch we'd been given, I picked the stamp and started then decided the stamp was too big so go one down - it wasn't there, in fact it was nowhere so onto plan b which I didn't actually have but I've done it and am quite pleased with the result,I used a Marianne ribbon flower die for the focal point, punched out the black strip and add matching ribbon,finally I embossed the lower part of the card with the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder, I should mention we had to work on a DL card.The sentiment is from Polka Doodles.

Love that ribbon flower die - I've never seen anything quite like that before. The whole look is so well done. Love the colors and the bold shapes too.
