Less Is More ,,,,, White on White :-)


Hi all , Hope you’re having a lovely weekend :-) The sun is shining and its almost G&T time !! YAY :-)

Oohh Mandi and Chrissie have come up with another diffy challenge this week over on the Less Is More ,,, the fact that they make it look soo easy is irrelevant !! This card has been dismantled several times and I now have a bin full of disasters !! :-)

I am happy with my end result tho ,,, its marvelous what some glitter can do to lift things I think !!



I used my TH Tattered Floral Dies, the larger flower is too big to use on a card with images ( I think ) so this is the first time I have used it ( I think ) ! I also used a TH Flourishes die for the stalk. I added some Star Dust stickles and a white card candy ,,, I added a Martha Stewart butterfly and border punch ,,, some ribbon that was on my ‘Wedding ‘ hat last week ( along with red and blue ) and a few pearls . I could only fit 3 letters on my sentiment oval so Mum it is !! Smile


OK ,,, just off to pour a tall glass of G&T and then I will be round to see what fabulous white creations our fellow Limettes have been creating !! Smile See ya soon xx

edited ,,, OMG !! I completely forgot we have invited peeps for dinner !!! I was so wrapped up in this card it went clean out me head !! Will be round to see you tomorrow instead !!! >>>>>

Love your tattered florals flower..I know what you mean about it being big! Do you think TH would be saying what no distress" :))Thanks for the tip about "fattening" my bird:) I wasn't all that happy with the bird esp. his eye lol so now he's been replaced with a fatter one and an improved eye placement ..
Cheers Sue x
