Less Is More: A Bit of Bling

Less Is More is SUCH a great challenge.  Mandi and Chrissie, the hosts, are full of fun ideas and their inspiration cards are always amazing.  But, even more amazing, are the entrants each week.  If you are ever stuck for clean and simple ideas - just pick any week and browse for awhile.  I am guessing that this week will be a particularly full week of entrants as the theme is...

A BIT OF 

...and who doesn't like bling!!


Check out the shine on this tree!


  • Stamps: Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Holidays, Bitty Background Basics
  • Paper: white
  • Ink: Delicata Golden Glitz
  • Accessories: Best Creations Red Glimmer Cardstock, Papertrey Merry & Bright dies (I don't have the coordinating stamp set but used the Bitty Backgrounds to add the patterns), misc ribbon

Oh my gosh Kim, I can't believe I missed this one. Fabulous tree(s); I really like how the white trees are an accent to the DP tree. This will look gorgeous on someones mantel this year.
I may have to case this beauty so it's on mine!! LOL Hopefully Papertry has a quick turnaround. ;)
