Less is More - Week 38 - Polka Dots

This week the Divas over at Less is More have asked us to create a card on the following lines (or dots!!!!!)......

This week we have a really easy recipe which is simply
As long as your design is Clean and Simple, has some white space (or its equivalent) and polka dots in evidence somewhere, it will be perfect for this challenge.

I have used  a stamp from a Creative Expressions set and paper pieced using Stampin Up paper.  I've used Letraset Flexmarkers to colour where necessary.  The image has been cut using Labels 20 which is one of my favourites and matted onto red card which was then put through my Joy in a Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped in red and clear embossed and again cut out using Labels 20.  It says "Fashion fades, only style remains.  Coco Chanel".  The only added embellishment is some red and white dotty ribbon.

Thanks for looking.


  1. A brilliant 'dotty' card and I might just need labels 20 now!! (as if I don't have enough already).

  2. That's a great shaped label, I can see why you like it.
    It's interesting that you say that this card uses red ... one part looks brown and the other pink on my monitor... how strange!
    Wonderful image too!
    Thanks so much

  5. Hi Karen - this is such an elegant easel card. Love the sentiment and the beautiful lady. The Nestie shape is fabulous - I can see why you love it so much.

  6. What a neat card! Fabulous!!! LOVE your shaped card and the colors are wonderful!

  7. Just to let everyone know I've now changed the photo as people were saying it looked brown and pink (!!!) rather than the actual red - hope it's okay now.

    Hugs and thanks for all your comments.
