Less is More - 200th Challenge

I'd never liked too many design elements on one card, nor have I ever been very good at combining patterned papers, therefore, I was delighted to find and embrace CAS design. 

Browsing about in Blogland I found two or three wonderful challenges that would do just that, challenge me to put CAS into play in my little crafty corner of the guest room.

"Less is More" is one of those challenges I so love.  Chrissie is just a darling.. she's in the UK from where my Grandmother Parker was born. [I'm still looking for a family connection =]  Her comrades are pretty special, as well - and all of them together on a team makes for really wonderful card-creations-browsing.

Thank you, Chrissie for inspiring me... I'll be a better card maker because of it!

For you, Anne, and Sarah, as you celebrate your 200th Challenge - I celebrate your very first challenge post of 5, February, 2011!  Congratulations - yes, let's party!!

Balloon-zero's are SSS dies; others are MFT, Wplus9 border Stars embossed with Ranger Detail Silver E.P.; and background Polka dots embossing folder from Cuttlebug. 
A gorgeous 8.5"x4.25" tall card cut from Neenah Solar White 120# card stock.
I'd love to send this to you, Chrissie... email an address to me?  Thanks and cheers!
