Less is More

Over at Less is More this week the challenge is Monochrome, so either black and white or shades of one colour, and here is my effort
I have chosen shades of brown, and although the card I have used as a mat looks black it is dark brown, I thought I had some brown pearls but couldn't find them, so used cream coloured ones, hope thats okay.
Less is More  monochrome
I am going away for a few days and have a pile of ironing to do, so must get cracking, but will try and leave comments on other cards later in the week.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog, love Irene xx

Fab striking card - well done

When I use a rectangle on a square card base I always think that it woks better slightly off centre, what do you think?
I love the sideways sentiment!
Thanks so much.

What is it with everyone doing the ironing? I don't even know where my iron is!! LOL! Two words...permanent press! (or do like I do and let hubby take care of the laundry! LOL!)

Love your pretty card! The addition of the bling is a great touch and I love the sentiment turned sideways!
My card is HERE
