Less is More #10 ~ One Layer Week

A very good morning on this beautiful sunny morning. It's Saturday wooohooooo so that means


Being a LIMette its the first thing i do on a Saturday morning well maybe second I've striped the beds and got the machine on while I was waiting on the challenge to be posted.

Its One Layer Card week with the sentiment being the focal point of the card.

I have gone for a Christmas card this week as when i read sentiment for the focal point this set always jumps out at me. Stampin up silent night my favourite and first stamp set from Stampin up


I have embossed the card using my oval nestie and the snowflakes are individual stamps from Papermania Silent Night set. LOL I've just realised I've used 2 Silent Night sets from different companies...spoooky!
The sentiment is stamped in Stampin Up Basic Grey ink and the snowflakes are stamped in Bashful Blue Stampin Up ink. The card size is A6 and the card is from The Papeterie


Please pop by and leave Chrissie and Mandi some love...... it amazes me the amount of people who just enter the challenge and don't even drop by  their blogs to comment come on ladies leave them some love it take two minutes!

Thanks for stopping by I look forward to visiting all the LIMettes this week
Have a fabby day
Stampin hugs
