Simon Says ‘ Fresh Daisies’

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a nice relaxing weekend :-)

I have made a card to enter the Less Is More Challenge whose theme this week is One Layered cards with spots and stripes.


I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post. I love the effect of using the negative of a die and as the design is on the inside I think it still qualifies as one layer :-)


I didn’t want to waste the die cut so I made another card using it. This is not entered into the challenge tho as it wouldn’t qualify :-)


I must admit, I prefer this one ,,,,


Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

I have a candy give away, if you would like to take a peek CLICK HERE :-)

Challenges :

4 Crafty Chicks ,, Die for Dies

Hope you have a lovely weekend :-) Happy Crafting :-) luv Lols x x x
