"Less is More" Challenge

"Button or Ribbon" is the order of the day over at the Less is More Challenge this week. I have to say I rarely use either (can't tie a bow to save my life!) but I guess that's what a challenge is all about.  I'm sure there'll be some lovely creations this week but my one is definitely plain & simple.

I've made a couple of baby cards, the pram is a cuttlebug embossing folder which I've just matted onto paper and embossed cardstock then mounted over the ribbon.

A blue one ...

and a lilac one ...


Might try something more adventurous later in the week if I have time.

Have a great week everyone.
Suze xx

Chrissie said...

These are both great and evidence that ribbons don't need to have knots or bows in... they're cheaper to post like this anyway.
Lovely baby cards!
Thanks so much
