Less is More - round & round

** This is my 2nd post for today - please scroll down for my Crafty Little Fairies DT card **

Hello... I'm back with another card, as I found a bit of spare time to make one for this week's Less is More challenge, which is 'round & round'.


I love this circle die, which is included in the MFT Blueprints 12 set, because it cuts the inner stitched circle, but also adds stitching outside the circle.  I stuck the two pieces onto another piece of card to keep them in place, then stamped the flowers and sentiment... nice and easy!

Items Used
White linen card - Papermill Direct
Stamps - Dandelion Dreams - Clearly Besotted Stamps
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 12 & 13
Memento Inks in Rose Bud, Tangelo & Canteloupe
Stems stamped in Memento Grey Flannel (but should be a bit lighter I think!)
Gems from my stash

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges
Cards in Envy - anything goes with an A2 card
CAS on Sunday - stitched faux or real (does die cut stitching count?)

Off for a little catch up with some of your blogs... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

A fabulous card! Talk about "great minds" - I bought these stamps the other week but haven't had chance to use them yet. Love how you've used the pierced dies behind the flowers. Hugs, Tracey x
