Less is More + Waltzingmouse

One more post for the day... I told myself I wasn't going to, but the Less is More challenge was singing its siren song to me and I just had to make something and get it posted.   This week's challenge is to go monochromatic.  Sounds easy enough... but I ended up having a bit of a challenge with it.  I combined the LIM challenge with the new sketch from Waltzingmouse.  And once, again, I used the Dainty Doily (Large) set from WMS.  Can't seem to get enough of it right now! 



For my card I used Stampin Up!'s Cherry Cobbler cardstock and ink, along with PTI's white cardstock (my favorite).  The small doily images were stamped and then diecut using the 2nd smallest die in the Spellbinders Big Scallop Circle dies.   The sentiment is from the WMS set Frame It, another favorite... oh shoot!  Might as well come clean... all my WMS sets are favorites!!!   I think I'm also going to drop this into the current Wee Memories challenge which is "anything goes"

Thanks for taking a peek...
