Less Is More ~ White On White


I have made the 'Less Is More' Challenge this week which is 'White On White'
You wouldn't believe how many shades of white there are, suppose its the same with Black too.
Now the challenge says Less Is More so I may have made this card to busy, that's the trouble with me at the minute I keep adding more and more things to my card. I really need to revert back to basics have been so disappointed with my card making lately, was thinking of packing it all in!

Anyway my card has been made with the Daisy die and leaf die, which is  available from SU!
I bought mine form my lovely friend Linda who I can really throughly recommend.
The wording was done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder I suddenly remembered about, it was like a Eureka moment lol... I think I should of left the daisy trim off the card but to late now its all stuck down.

Hope you have better weather where every you are in the world, its typical April weather here, rain,sunshine, rain, sunshine but not really to cold. I am hoping to get the washing dry during the sunny periods,so hope.

It's a lovely card :-) I think that with a one colour card you can use more than you normally would with LIM (well that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it! LOL)

Helene said...

Really lovely card. Its "simply" stunning so I guess you can't have put to much on it.

Great card, white on white kinda calls for lots of layers and textures not overdone at all XOXO Zoe

Judi said...

FANTASTIC work Sonia! Not too much on it at all, and as for thinking of giving up - don't be daft - your work is always great.

It`s a fabulous card and not too busy at all. I think we all have moments when we think about stopping cardmaking but then we get the urge and come up with a beauty like this.

Hi Sonia
This card is absolutely beautiful - not too busy at all - and there is NO WAY you should think about giving up card-making! I know every now and again we get that feeling, but suddenly our mojo jumps out of the corner again and we're off!!
Anyway... LOVE IT!

A beautiful card

Hello From Texas said...

Your card is lovely Sonia. I agree with Mandi; because it's W/W you can get away with a bit more and it's still CAS.
I also found (to my surprise) how many shades of white there seem to be. Who knew?? LOL

I think as it is white on white it doesn't look as busy as if it were in colours. You've done a fantastic card and on looking through your blog, your work is just fantastic - so don't give up - we all have days like that.
hugs Linbyx

No need to think of giving up, you STILL have it in you to make a card as gorgeous as this.

Absolutely beautiful, all the elements work so well together. x

Maureen said...

It's a lovely card, just perfect in fact!!

Aileen said...

I think because it's all white we can get away with a bit more. I used the daisies too but it's amazing how they look completely different. Love how you've paired them with the branch. x
