Less is More!

I really do think that sometimes 'less is more' 
and this card with the die-cut butterflies has become one of my 'trademark' designs.
Very very simple with a stamped image, some matting and a bit of ribbon.
The butterflies - several die-cuts tied together with twine - are SU's 'Beautiful Wings'.
Beaded string on the image plus a few loose beads completes the picture.

The next two cards I am going to show you have been made to satisfy
 our current FB weekly challenge:

'White on White with a dash of Black!'

Certainly less colour!!

For this first one I followed Monday Mojo's Sketch

and I will submit it to Mojo Monday 296 contest

Papers from my scrap bags, some die-cut and punched shapes, lace and a few gems...

For my second card I followed the Sketch~n~Scrap sketch

and I will submit this card to their Card Sketch #3 Challenge

Very white on white!
A bit of embossing/die-cutting/punching and  a
few embellishments...

Hope you find them a bit different!

Happy Crafting!
