Less is More - Week 43 Recipe - A bit of Bling

Hi everyone

Well this weeks challenge over at Less is More is a bit of

Well how could I possibly pass up an opportunity like this.... bling and sparkle are right up my street! woohoo!!  And again there are so many absolutely stunning entries this week, including from our wonderful blog hosts Mandi and Chrissie!

So here is my little entry:-

The swirly tree is a Memory Box die that I don't own myself (yet) but I had a crafting day with my two crafting buddies Shirley and Beryl on Monday and we had a "die cutting day" and this particular die belongs to Beryl (thanks Beryl).  Actually I have got a similar tree to this on my Cricut but sometimes dies are quicker and easier to do aren't they!!  The "Merry Christmas" is a peel off - SHOCK, HORROR and GASP!!!  But actually I think it goes particularly well on this card - what do you think??

I'm so pleased with how this card looks and think it would look equally stunning on black too (which was going to be my first choice but changed my mind!!!)

I would also like to enter my card into these:-

Right thats me done then.  Will be back later to come and leave some comments on my fellow LIMettes blogs.  So until then...

Happy Crafting

Hi Tina

I love the intricate die cut tree on your lovely pink card base - and I agree with you that the peel off works perfectly with it! (Perhaps because it's similar in design)
