White Christmas and endless wishes…

Hi and welcome to my blog. This week, I had fun combining my Design Team card for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown with the challenge over at Less is More, as it just so happened that both challenges call for a one layer card…

The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is for a one layer Christmas card, using any method you like. The challenge at Less is More is more specific, requiring a clean and simple, one layer card, which has two of something.

I hope you like my card for this week – minimum embellishments and lots of white space for a clean and simple look.  I usually struggle to make one layer cards as the temptation for me is to keep adding layers and embellishments, just because I can!

I’m also linking my card to: 

The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown runs until Friday, 24th October, so I hope you can join us there.
