Less is More?

Believe it or not I've had this made since saturday but only just got around to photographing it. It's for several challenges:
  • Bah! Humbug! who think that less is more (and who am I to argue??) You can interpret it by making a small card or going for clean and simple or both. I've gone for the clean and simple with mine.
  • Saturday Challenge - water
  • Fussy and Fancy Friday - Christmas in July
  • DU2DS - The Great Outdoors
To be honest it couldn't get much simpler than this one but I still enjoyed making it. I've used one the funky bps from Crafty Ann's but you'll just have to take my word for that seeing as I've covered most of it up! I've printed the Bridge Over Stream digi onto white pearlescent paper having changed the colour to a lavender shade in publisher first. I put the bottom 2/3rds through the swiss dots folder and embossed two straight lines to put the ribbon between. The only thing I've done with the image is pick out areas with a glue pen and add some glitter to give a lovely frosty/slightly snowy appearance.
A few glittery peel off edgings and an acetate printed happy christmas peel off and that about finishes it! Thank you for your visit today - I might even have another one for you later!!
