Less is More - Winter Blues

It's a long time since I entered a Less is More challenge! The theme this week is Winter Blues! With the dreadful weather we've all been having it seems to be a bit too appropriate!


 With that in mind I used a more spring like stamp. It is the current monthly club stamp from Little Claire's Designs. I decided not to colour it in but just use it stamped in Midnight Muse. I was trying to get the look of a Delft tile and have to say I'm quite pleased with the result. The mat was cut using a L'il Inkers die which has the effect of faux stitching round the edge, and the mounted on a scrap of Midnight Muse card. The ribbon was also a snippet- in fact it came off a Pandora gift bag and was  the perfect colour match. If you peel it off and turn it over you will see it has Pandora printed across it! Now you can guess what one of my Christmas presents was! So I'm  popping across to the Pixies Snippets playground  to see what everyone is up to and I'm also going to enter this into Papertake Weekly's challenge which this week is Anything Goes!



  1. A beautiful card Sue - gosh I do love that stamp!

  3. Very pretty card Sue, the stitched detail goes so well with this pretty image, Cathy x

  4. Know what you mean about the winter blues Sue - only 8 months until the spring lol! There's plenty of spring going on in your beautiful card though with those frolicking birds and I love the colour. Enjoy your pandora goodies! Vicky x
