Charmed at Less Is More

Hi All,

Hope everyone is OK and enjoying this crafting weather!

I've been making the most of it and made my card for Less is More where the challenge is 'Add a Charm'.
My card is very simple, pale pink parchment base card, computer sentiment and die cut Dress Form, adhered with 3D foam pads.  This was sponged and stamped in Victorian Velvet DI using a Crafty Individuals flourish and a little sprinkling of pink glitter.  My little ribbon 'belt'  holds the charm.

Thats it for now and thanks for looking,

Avril xx

Hi Avril :)

Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog. The image is by Rubber Stampede, '3942F - Woman Repose' and its an old wooden stamp (well old for me) lol!.

Love your elegant card, just super-stylish (as always) and the charm and sparkle set it off perfectly! :)

Ai, those less is more cards, so difficult to make, is my opinion (I'm not so good in it). But this one is great! Simple and yet very beautiful and stylish. I like the the speaking also :)

It certainly is great crafting weather isn't it, Avril. Trouble is I want to be in the garden!! Oh well, can't have it both ways I suppose.
Your dress form is beautiful. I love the belt with the little charm.
