It's Saturday... Time for Less is More!

Hi Ya!! Its a BEAUTIFUL Saturday here in the Pacific Northwest (Washington State to be exact!) and it looks like were are finally going to have an extended period of warm, sunny weather (fingers crossed!).   And Saturday also mean a brand new Less is More challenge.  Today's challenge we are to use buttons or ribbon.  I decided to go with buttons, but may be back later with a card using ribbon, as well. 



There is also a new sketch over at Waltzingmouse and so I decided to combine the two challenges today.  Once, again, I went with some of my favorite WMS sets:  Dainty Doily, Victorian Frippery & Fancy Phrases.   Love, love, love those sets!  They are all so very versatile and easy to work with.   Because this is for Less is More I have kept everything very simple and went with a color combo I really love:  white, kraft and very dark brown (in this instance SU!'s Early Espresso).  I stamped the border, trimmed it out and then adhered it to the kraft cardstock and trimmed off the ends.  Buttons were adhered using using Diamond Glaze.  Not much more to the card then that!

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI White; SU! Kraft; Stamps:  WMS; Buttons:  DeNami Design; Ink: SU!
