Less is More - A Sketch

(For my JUGs project, click here; for my ODBD card, click here)

Hello!  Back with another post today... this time for Less is More.   Apparently last week's challenge to use monograms on our cards caused a some grumbling amongst the faithful LIMettes, ala the much reviled "acetate" challenge.   Ah... but that is what a challenge is all about, right?? To challenge us and get us out of our creative boxes.   Anyway, this week Chrissie and Mandi provided us with a simple, but lovely sketch as an antidote to last week's challenge.   Now, I just spoke a bit about being challenged and getting outside our creative boxes and what did I do??? Stayed right inside my creative box!!   Unfortunately, I wasn't  feeling too terribly creative today so I played it safe.



I have only recently jumped on the felt bandwagon and so used the two colors I had purchased from PTI for my card.  I cut the felt using a set of PTI flower dies and sewed them together using embroidery floss.  The buttons are also from PTI.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  I think I will be giving this to my niece for her birthday.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & hibiscus burst; felt:  PTI white & hibiscus burst; buttons:  PTI; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Ink;  PTI True Black; Punch:  Fiskars Upper Crust
