Less Is More

Hiya all! I'm in a crafty flow right now...for a change! I've been doing some secret and exciting design team stuff, but was so tempted to join the Less Is More challenge this week as they have there elegant blog header as inspiration.

I didn't stick to the colours as I wanted to give it an earthy cowboy feel, please don't ask how the pearls fit in to that! I hope that you recognise some of the elements though. Thank you Mandi and Chrissie for giving so much fab inspiration!

I used:
Spellbinder label dies
Tim Holtz sentiment
Hein design flourish
Hero Arts large wood grain stamp
Penny Black music notes
Rich Cocoa Memento ink
Distress ink

I would also like to join:
One Stop Craft Challenge: Coffee and Creme

Hope your coffe will keep you going!

Warm hugs
