Less is More - Week 7

Good Morning, Its Tuesday and that for me means its time to share my card for the fantastic LESS IS MORE challenge blog, if you've not yet popped over and joined in the fun, this could be the week that you take the plunge and join the craze of simplicity at its best, this week Chrissie and Mandi have really had me scratch my head, not only do they want simplicity like every wekk but this week they want
MASCULINE
as well, well i've had a bash and this is what I've come up with.....


I've really loved playing along in this new venture, and this week was no difference, although it did take a lot longer than I had imagined it would to produce this card, as the first few attempts went in the bin as I wasn't happy with the layouts at first, so after several different compostitions I think I've got there.

Used to Make this Card

Images - Create a scene by Creative Expression
Stamped in - Vintage Photo Distress Inl
Sentiment - Visiable Images
Cardstock - The Paperterie

Right then I better move and get the kids to school and tackle some housework, as I was out at card class last night and had a great evening, and am hoping to get out to bead class later in the week, so its heads down and tackle Adams bedroom he's just got new more grown up furniture and a new bed, so its now time to tackle all the toys and books and find homes for them all

Hugs
