The Less is More challenge this week is....
Make and/or use a charm on your project
I had a few charms (4) that I bought a long time ago because I thought they would be so cute on my cards. Then I didn't use them because charms and mailing don't fit well together. These cards will be hand delivered or included in a package.
On this first card, I used the whimsical butterfly from Sweet Summer which was a Sale-a-bration set last year, to coordinate with the charm.
And then I did this one.....
This little dragonfly charm was in the package with the butterfly. The flowers are from the Just Believe set and are done with the Poppin' Pastels technique. You'll find a tutorial for this technique here.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
