For Less is More - sketch

Hello sweet bloggers,

Hope you are having a decent weekend... 
Here is a card I made this evening for Less is More the theme being a sketch this week.


Rather simple creation with tiny snowman that were pretty hard to punch through 200 gsm along with punched snowflakes. The red squares have been stuck with dimensional foam dots to make the card look more interesting. Added pearls in the centre of the big snowflakes to finish the picture.
Now I have to share something funny - this picture was taken on the bath mat in the bathroom as I thought it would match with the colours of the card - such are the mad confessions of a crafter, lol. What a sight I looked sitting on the floor of the bathroom trying to capture my latest creation. Luckily Aleeza was fast asleep!!!

I like the way Less is More stretches my imagination in the most CAS manner.

Love,

Monica

LOL! You're too funny! Actually the bath mat matches great! BUT, I bet you did look a little strange down here!

Love that white background on the card and the snowmen and snowflakes are precious! Great card, Monica!

CAS perfection. Fab heavy weight card stock. I often take photos of my cards on the bathroom floor - the lights are brightest in there!
