Another icy day all...very cold indeed and this is giving me more of an excuse to craft, I'm trying to keep up with the Less is more challenge. What simplicity is.. when I could've spent over an hour trying to work out which paper I'll use and then more importantly will that particular sketch fit my lovely stamp. Well I can truly say I'm enjoying these type of card far more!

So I've used my wonderful chalks, these were one of first purchases when I started properly crafting three years ago, stamp was in a £1 bin some years ago, I gave it a home, I used a clear inkpad and then gently rubbed some aqua chalk with some cotton wool (didn't have an inkpad in my collection of that colour so I improvised), some ric rac and the other embellishments from the bottom of my draw.

Challenges entered are Less is more 'aqua', Paper Sundaes 2nd entry cas, Charisma 'vintage', Craft Your Passion 'no patterened paper and Cute card Thursday 'buttons & bows'. Many thanks for the lovely comments. Have a fab evening all!
