I'm taking the plunge!!!

Once again the week has flown by. DD decided to come home for a few days inbetween finishing uni work and before starting revision for exams. We have had a lovely week 'doing girly things'.
Unfortunately, I haven't had much time for crafting, but I had decided on Saturday that I was going to enter Less is More - Sentiment focus challenge this week. I have planned in my head what I wanted to do, but now that its done (DD said are you not going to finish it) I'm a little uncertain, but here goes - I can only be told its rubbish compared to some the the lovely cards submitted to this challenge.

I have used the verse and feather Clarity stamps that I bought at Harrogate a couple of weeks ago. I stamped on Linen card and then heat embossed with clear powder.
I don't seem to have a lot to say about it, wonder what others will say!!!

Well, all I can say is Thanks for looking,

Avril xx

I think you've done a brilliant card. Isn't it hard to step away from the card and not bling it up.

Mary J said...

Nope, I think this looks fab Avril!

Really great sentiment and stamp and just the right amount of drama. Such a hard style to pull off, but you have done it with real class.

Hi Avril

A very stunning and elegant finished card. Just shows you don't need much on a card to make a masterpiece.

I love this very much.

Love Jules xx
