Less is More


Well I had to join in didn't I?!  I've seen loads of people having a go at the 1st challenge (pink, black & white) at Less is More so I've had a play today and this is what I've come up with.  It's possibly verging on the boring side of clean & simple because I was feeling a bit uninspired... well actually I wasn't, I had lots of ideas but none of them were working today!

I've used a stamp from Little Claire called Spikey Flowers.  Added some bright pink pearls in different sizes, and used a Stampin' Up sentiment that was part of a magazine subscription gift ages ago.  Bright pink and black cardstock is from the Papermill.  And that's it!

Apologies for being a bit rubbish at returning your comments today - I've got a cold and we all know what a wuss I am about being ill!  I keep sitting down to do a bit of commenting and then I can feel myself getting sleepy so I have to get up and bring myself round again.  So I'm trying to catch up but in short bursts!
