Less is more this Spring !!

Over at the Less is More Challenge this week the theme is "Spring"
This is my card for this weeks challenge , I used a 5" square card blank, and I took an extra white 5" square of white card and went round the edge with the Martha Stewart pansy round the page punch set
The sentiment I made with Making Memories rub-on Simply stated alphas which I've had for ages but was to scared to use !!! ha ha me scared of a rub-on ... its true
The little butterfly stamp is from Magnolia and I just added a little colour with Barely Banana Stampin'up pen and RV000,RV00 and RV91 Copic sketch markers.
You can also see this card and lots of other Magnolia creations from the girls over at the Steel Magnolias
Have a great day

I love your card and love the MS edges! I have a question, as I also have bought the same punches: how do you know what size to cut the white paper so you get the exact measures? I have mayor problems making the corner first, then a side, try to fit in a corner again etc... Is there a special size that you start up with?


La Vikinga said...

Quick answer!!!

Thank you Susie it is of MUCH help; I'll write down the mearurements and have them where I keep the punches...

Love you!


Aileen said...

Shaz said...
