Less Is More Week 8

Pop over to the Less Is More Challenge Blog to see this week's challenge which is a sketch based one.

I chose to make a baby girl card for my best friend who gave birth to a gorgeous girl a few days ago.



I have folded an A4 piece of Whisper White card from Stampin' Up! in to three to make a tall DL card. Folding the card means I get a stronger base.

The front is matted with the same white card that has been embossed with a dotty embossing folder. The card has been matted on to Blushing Bride pink card by SU and finished with a bow tied with the my favourite poly stitched ribbon by SU in matching Blushing Bride. The tag has been stamped with a sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set and punched with the small tag punch.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enter my prize draw here if you haven't already done so.
