Less is More

The challenge at Less is More this week is a Recipe - a combination of any 3 previous challenges. So plenty of options as the challenge has reached week       
For my choice I have picked 3 squares - Week 4, Embossing - Week ,and a touch of Red -  Week 9.  I decided to use this Woman in the Hat, by Rubber Stampeed, she was one of the first stamps I bought and hasn't seen ink for some time!
I matted the  3 images onto red cardstock and embossed the with love in the right-hand top corner (no choice about this as the folder only works 1 way ( I have thought about cutting it open and sticking  the other end but most cards I make have the fold on the left, so it stays as it is).  Easy Peasy, card done - then I wondered about colouring her necklace red or the ribbons on the hat, but thought this might be more than 'a touch' so have left well alone. (it might get done before sending)
I see that the challenge has it the 1,000 followers - Well Done Chrissy and Mandy!  This challenge takes me out of my comfort zone, but it is addictive and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks like this.

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:
  Ooh La La - No backing paper
  Stamps R Us - Anything Goes
  Make It Monday - As Always - Anything Goes

I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers, and I'm glad to say Mr Blogger didn't keep them too long.

Just thought I mention -I didn't get made redundant last week as 'rain stopped play' again, but after my  'interfeering again' this morning, DH says I might be!   I have started calling it the 'Winter House' cause there's not much summer left, it feels  like Autum.

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking.

Hi Avril :) Im now playing catchie-uppy! lol.

Love your gorgeous and elegant card - this really is an iconic image and does not need anything but the splash of red you have given it. Very dramatic for such a simple card and the embossed text is perfect. :)
