Less is More wk30 - recipe

Hubby took Dex to his mum's this morning, so I've had some quiet time in the craft room and made a card for the new challenge at Less is More.  This week it's a recipe challenge - to take 3 of the previous challenges and combine them to make a card.


Apologies for the dodgy photo... think I'll have to start taking my pics in the kitchen again, it's so hard to get the lighting right in the craft room.  The weeks I chose were - 16 - butterflies, 23 - something with legs, and 25 - button or ribbon, but there's a few more it would fit too (embossing, off centre, things that move).

I've used a stamp set called A Girl and Her Cake by The Cats Pajamas and some nameless gingham card from my stash.  The butterfly was cut with a Stampin' Up embosslits die, button is from my stash.

I'm also entering my card for the 'strawberry, chocolate and cream' challenge at Sweet Stampin.

Thanks for all your lovely comments yesterday, I'm slowly catching up with you all!
