1,2…….…..3!!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully nice and early for Less is More this week (Theme Baby or Child). Nice wide scope but I found it quite difficult to do CAS for a child…to make an attractive card for a child tends to lend itself to bolder style designs so this week my card has a bit more layering than I would normally do for this challenge, hopefully there’s enough white space and simplicity (oops a few little details did creep in) to qualify.

In honour and might I add extremely early I created a card for my youngest goddaughter who is three this year…

A while ago I bought some lovely embroidered tape from the chartity shop (20P!!) and I knew it would be useful so quite simply a strip attached on a layer and a message embellished with three buttons created a simple design but hopefully bright and appealing to a child.

and just in case the message hadn’t been twigged

a nice big three inside Party smile!

As I said…. I have made this card early……birthday in August…now all I have to do is remember I made it…… and where I put it!!!

God-congratulations. Three year old this year will be blessed with a beautiful card. Whether you do one or more layers, your cards are very interesting. When I look at your work I am convinced that the difficulties are what really motivates you, and the effects of these efforts are beautiful.
Thank you for visiting me. That's nice. Regards

Love all the embellies on your card Diane, that ribbon was a great find! Saw your nappy bouquet, which was lovely, I made a nappy cake for my DIL's baby shower and loved making it. You can see it here: http://canonburycreations.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/celebration-cake.html
