Less Is More ,,,,??

Hi all :-) this is a very quick card from me this evening !!

I made this with the Less Is More challenge in mind whose theme is One Layer + Embossing and also the Simon Says Stamp and Show whose theme is ‘Old Wives Tales’ I went with ‘A stitch in Time’





I used SU Crumb Cake card, bought from Mandi and I used a stamp from the Tim Holtz Haberdashery set. I inked it with Vintage Photo distress ink and embossed with Vintage photo embossing powder. I then coloured all the edges with the ink too. The tape was in a Christmas cracker and the ribbon slider was a purple brad that I inked and embossed too. I added the Graphic 45 chipboard button and used twine to make ‘9’ !

Thanks for looking and I look forward to hearing what you think,,, I might have cheated here adding the tape and button ,,,,,
