Less is More # 9 - A Touch Of Red

In between sucking ice cubes to sooth my throat, and taking a sneaky catnap, I made this little card for this week's LESS IS MORE challenge of A Touch Of Red


I've been wanting to use this Le Chat Noir stamp for ages, it was a freebie with Craft Stamper magazine ages ago, and for some reason, this is the stamp that came immediately to mind for the theme.  Classic Oval Nestie and a Scallop Oval Nestie for the frame, and the sentiment and pawprint stamps are from a Wild Rose set that I've had a while too.

I'm so sorry that I didn't get to visit many of the LIM entries last week, I have a feeling this week may be the same, but I will catch up with you all soon I hope.

Hugs, Sxx
