Less is more sometimes...

Hey everyone, how are you ? Oh I'm so much happier now all that 'orrible' snow has disappeared :) and I noticed today it was a teeny bit lighter for longer today...really does give me a lift to think that spring is just around the corner....I'm sure I suffer with S.A.D !

I think that the brighter mood I felt today has reflected in this card I've made for a lovely friend of mine.


I wanted it to be quite a simple card...I'm getting slightly weary (if that's the right word ) of fussy cards, though you get the wow factor with all the lovely details I've been just as impressed by the 'less is more' look that seems to be creeping into trend.It's quite a challenge :)


Little close up of this cutie....I like that she's not over detailed too :) She's a digi stamp which you can find here
Have a good week everyone xx

  7. Gorgeous! Love the colours.

    My style seems to have gone a little simpler lately too. Not sure why, could be due to necessity through lack of time!! :)
