Extreme Less is More!

Hello everyone.... I'm not really here, should be in the craft room!

Just popping in with a VERY 'less is more' card for the 'designer paper' challenge at Less is More, as my last attempt had a 'bit' too much paper.  This one definitely hasn't!  It's for an order for my friend, who prefers her cards as simple as possible... Pav actually laughed when he saw this one!

Sorry, just realised the photo looks a bit blurry, might replace it later!

Items Used
White linen and buff cardstock - Papermill Direct
Scrap of gingham - Pink Petticoat
Memory Box Train Set die (just used 1st carriage) - MCH
Sentiment - LOTV
Memento ink in Toffee Crunch
Corner rounder punch

Off to the craft room for the day... Yes, you're quite right, I said I was going to the gym - well there's just too much to do so I'll have to do extra sessions next week!

Back later with another card... Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

What a gorgeous baby card. Yes, very Less is More, but perfectly formed. Love it. Glad you saw sense too and opted for the craft room rather than the gym.
