Less Is More - Bling

This week's challenge on Less is More is 'Bling' so what better time than Christmas to get out the stickles and add a bit of glitz.

When I was a child I loved the cards that showered glitter all over the place when you opened the envelope - not quite as keen now but a little gives a simple card a bit of a fillip.

Think my youngest Grandson (7) is a 'Less is More' kind of child.  Came home from school today with a handmade card.  Simple red card with three cut-out snowflakes on it.  His Mum suggested he add a bit of glitter - didn't want that.  Then suggested he write a greeting on the inside. His reply -  'I think it is fine as it is'

This is only the second Christmas card I've made this year, (note to self- get a move on).
