Less Is More

Well, we had peace between my boys after all on Monday when my younger son's school closed for the day as well, thank goodness for that, I don't think I could have stood the sulking, lol! Today's card is one I made for J & C Creations a little while ago and it is very CAS. As I have collected more crafty goodies and got more confident in my card making, I have fallen into the trap of putting more & more embellishments on my cards, but as much as I love to do that, I thought this pretty stamp deserved to be the focal point with no distractions! I'm pretty pleased with the photo, now if I could just remember the settings I had the camera on  for next time I'd be laughing!

  15. Love how you've used the die as the focal point, they're so often hidden behind all the embellishments.
    I know what you mean, it is hard to leave them off but a very nice result x
