You've Been Framed.



Just a quick post today showing the card I made for the less is more challenge which I am loving! Not too sure if I went a bit OTT by distressing the edges but I felt it needed a little colour to bring the look together,let me know what you think! :)

I'm using this card for the following Challenges:-
CYDA22,Monochrome,
 LIM19,One layer,in the frame,
Annabella Stamps,Masking and Sponging.
That's it from me for today,I hope you've had a good weekend.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

Love the colours Julie. Don't think the edges needed distressing but it's still great. xx

Simply lovely, the background colour is wonderful!

Really lovely card. I think the colour is super - I think the central image could stand without the edges being distressed. However, that said, it's still lovely with!

The central panel is fabulous but I would have left the edges simply white... all focus would then have been on the image!
It's super submission.
Thanks so much.
