Less is more - Anything goes


Oh my will blogger cope?  The Limettes have been challenged on Less is More to an anything goes week and to put in as many entries as possible.  Chrissie and Mandi are hoping for a whopping 1000 entries. If this site doesn't get your clean and simple mojo going, I don't know what will!!

It's very daunting to be going it alone, without our guidelines.  Usually this is what gives you focus but once you've accepted the freedom, well, skies the limit.

So enough waffle and onto my card.

Whilst I was in my quandry and looking around my stamps I spied Dasher.  He's such a handsome fellow don't you think?  I thought he would look great stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White.  So the basis for my card was born.  I attached my Whisper White to a Basic Black card base.  As Dasher is rather magical with his fancy antlers, I decided to shroud him some magical mist, namely a little Elegant Eggplant and Perfect Plum.  These were sponged around him.  Finally some Dazzling Diamonds were added to his antlers just to add to his mystery.

I added the Basic Black satin ribbon to ground him and stamped Merry Christmas from Contempo Christmas.  One of my favourite festive stamps.

Well I hope you've enjoyed my post and seeing my card.  Will i post more well we will just have to wait and see.  I wish the best of luck to Chrissie and Mandi who without fail comment on everyones entries.  Lots of coffee required this week ladies!
