Less is More Challenge

Hi All
I hope that you are having a good Bank Holiday weekend. I have had a busy day stocking up the food cupboard , getting the laundry up to date, doing my routine at the gym and now managing to find an hour or two for some crafting.

I used to do several challenges a week but somehow got out of the routine. I find them really good for pushing myself outside of my comfort zone which has got to be a good thing.
The challenge set this week by the lovely ladies at Less is More is a sketch :

As I am trying to design some Christmas cards for the parties I have got coming up so I thought that I would incorporate the sketch as well.
So this is what I have come up with:


This card uses the lovely new stampset Seasonally Scattered which includes 3 stamps :

First I  heat embossed the Merry stamp using Pool Party, matted this onto Pool Party Cardstock and used a few rhinestones. Then I stamped the word Christmas using Island Indigo onto Pool Party Cardstock and put it all together.

Please come back tomorrow when I will tell you about a Special offer that Stampin up have , but which only lasts for a few days. You won't want to miss out on it

Until next time
