Less is More wk16 - butterflies

My last post before we go on holiday - we're off to Devon tomorrow morning :o) I had to find time to squeeze in a card for Less is More though! This week's challenge is 'butterflies' - another one of those 'should be easy but the mind goes blank' challenges...


I've followed the sketch at Clean & Simple and added some pearls and Sakura clear stardust pen (on the sentiment butterfly) so that I could also enter my card for the 'bling' challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.

I've used yellow core'dinations card, with a leftover scrap of K&Co paper. Sentiment is from Elzybells, butterfly and border cut using MS punches, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Apologies for the slightly rushed post! Lots to get done before we go.  I'll be back next Tuesday and there'll be a couple of scheduled posts while I'm away.  Ooh I almost forgot - I had all my hair cut off yesterday! I went from long to a short bob with a fringe, and it looks so much better... had Dex's hair trimmed too but not much, he's still my little surfer dude lol :o)
