The "Less is More" Challenge

"Freaky Flutterby" Anya Digi Stamp
Lovely Anya Digi.  I do love the Greetings Farm Stamps.
I decided to enter this into the Less is More Challenge.  I do hope it is "Less" enough.  I thought it had very clean lines and thoroughly enjoyed making it.


  1. Hi
    Whlst your card is very pretty, our challenge guidelines are such that we require 'white' or 'blank' space on our submissions. There are sometimes exceptions if the background is pale or self coloured.
    Absolutely no offense meant, but, maybe you would like to try something slightly less detailed
    Would love to see it as your work is FAB
    Do hope to see you again

    Absolutely no offense taken!!!!!!!!

  3. Hi there!
    Thanks for entering our challenge with this charming card.
    The challenge at "Less is More" is specifically to promote the making of 'Clean and Simple' cards. These should contain areas of 'white space' which means that parts of the card should have no layers, papers or embellishments. In the light of this then your card does contain a little much in that none of the base card is visible.
    It's very difficult genre to adapt to if one has always been used to highly embellished cards. If you look at some of the submissions to our blog, most will have the required style, whereas others are still trying to achieve the clean and simple look!
    I hope that you will visit our blog next week for another clean and simple challenge.

  4. A stunning card even though it isn't CAS. It isn't easy to change to CAS when you are used to embelishments and design papers xx

  5. I suppose that is my take on less!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL maybe I should stick to using the embellishments :-))))))) x
    thanks for the comments Jane! x

  6. Whilst not CAS it IS a lovely card - CAS took me so far from my comfort zone initially too. Hope you'll be visiting the challenge again though


  7. Very pretty colours and I love that TGF image

  8. Really gorgeous card! like many others I find it's proving very challenging taking the less is more's so hard letting go of all the lovely embellishments etc, and leaving some blank areas!!!
