Less Is More

I missed last weeks LIM challenge, so I was determined not to miss this weeks, which is a sketch, a little bit easier than some of the challenges!

This card has been in 'bits' since Tuesday - DH decided we should decorate the Dining Room this week - and  although I don't really do much - I am the Chief Gofer!  (so not much me time).
Today, however, is my Birthday - 21 again!!  (I've had a day off)   My son and DIL came for tea and DD is home for the summer,  so it was lovely to be all together.  DH has now gone to his special needs youth club and DD and I are going to 're-fresh' Harry Potter ready for the new film!  So like all 'good' things
the birthday is almost at an end, lots of nice cards, flowers and prezzies - and a special surprise card from my blog friend Katina, who makes some lovely cards, Thank You.

So a short post - or I'll be too late to enter the card!  I used a white linen card base - and the scallop border is a MS punch - only half of the scallop showing, nesties circles and MS butterfly punch.  The sentiment was printed onto the card base. I added some stickles to the butterflies.

I am also entering this card in Crafts & Me challenge - Birthdays
  Truly Scrumptious - Things with Wings

Thanks for looking, and if you like what you see, please pop back.
