Having problems with the camera today! (What's new???? LOL)
This is the first of 2 cards for Less Is More challenge this week (the other not dry so will post later!).
The challenge was 'a bit of Bling!'

This really is a CAS card - just white pearlised cardstock embossed with a winter design layered onto a dark grey pearlised card then onto more pearlised white cardstock.

The sentiment and tiny snowflakes were stamped in Pearlescent Blue ink and clear embossed. The sentiment was a freebie in a homestyle magazine and I thought it was one of the best freebies I've acquired recently! It came with a couple of flourishes, four different types of tiny snowflakes and a flourish frame. Not bad!! 

I just spent a wee while sticking tiny sparkly gems on each of the snowflakes.

Sorry the pic is a bit naff - I'm actually pleased with the way this one turned out - it looks quite good 'in real life'!
