Parisian Lady - Less is More

You know, after my Pink & Green Mother's Day card I made today, which I've had a very clear idea of what I was going to do for a few days now, I got creative block for anything else! Isn't that always the way? And I was at Jen's for a crafting afternoon so I didn't want to waste the time! I did come up with another card there, but I need to finish it so I'll post it another day. Anyway, almost the second I stepped into my craft room I got hit with an idea, and here it is.
 The topper is a freebie from Craftwork Cards from Harrogate last week, the lace is from my local Habiknit store and the pearls are from my stash. The Sentiment was one free off a magazine I think...

Now this was a very simple card to make, but would you believe it, something went wrong! When I came to stamp the sentiment, the pearls got in the way and it didn't stamp properly! Luckily enough, the card blank was made from an A4 piece of card so I had the single DL layer spare. So I started again, this time stamping the greeting first, and stuck it over my first attempt!
So this is another entry in the Less Is More Challenge 8 - Sketch
Thanks for looking and maybe see you later...I'm off to bed!
