Less is More "Off centre"

I had made this card a few weeks ago, but didn't put a sentiment on at the time because I wasn't sure who it was going to. So had to add a sentiment....................On reflection, I think the sentiment would have been better printed on, but as I am having trouble getting my printer to print on heavier card at the moment, I had no option anyway!

This is being entered into the new challenge from Less is More this week. And the recipe this week is "Off Centre"

Hi Val,

I saw your lovely card on Less is More... it is lovely! The ribbon looks so delicate and so does the pin.

The sentiment looks just fine... infact I would have never noticed it until I read your post. Sometimes, we crafters are so hard on ourselves.
Anyway, I am going to become your follower. Would love it if you follow me as well.
:)


Happy crafting and nice to meet you,

Monica

Michelle The butterfly is printed onto vellum, cut out and sprayed then glittered. It was put together in two layers and pearls and hat pin added to finish off
