Punches and Pearls


This weeks Less is more challenge is - White on White - my base is a cut and embossed card, using a new Marianne embossing/cutting die, the sentiment is stamped in grey and then the whole is decorated with punched flowers plus a butterfly - all in white, I've used tiny flat back pearls and liquid pearls for the flower centres. I seem to have had a week of punched flowers with all those that went on my 'magic box', I find it a great way to use up scraps of card.
