Late and not great!

Ooh it's not like me to be scraping in so last minute for Less is More!  The challenge this week is 'green', which should have been no problem at all, but I've been a bit hampered by my poorly boy so I've only just managed to fit my DT makes in... luckily Dex has just had a little nap so I rushed off upstairs and threw a card together!



I cut the scalloped card blank on the cricut - yes, I know, I actually used the poor dusty thing!  I've moved it into its own little space in the craft room in the hope that I might get a bit of use out of it, and I have used it a couple of times since I moved it... if it goes back to being unused I'll be getting it sold.

When I'd cut the card shape, and the little die cut tree - which is a die from Little Claire, I wasn't sure what to do with the rest of my card, as you can probably tell from the way it turned out!  Well, I didn't have much time to think about it!  The sentiment is from Elzybells, brown gingham ribbon from my stash, little snowflakes are from a Hero Arts set.

This card might get binned, but at least I've made something for the challenge :o)
