Less is More let it snow

I had a real attack of random smudges with my one layer cards for Less is More this week, this is my final attempt which has a little cut off the bottom to remove some red ink.  Red?  Haven't used red for ages...   When I then got a blue smudge at the top right I could have either wept about it or covered it up.  In the end I did both and it is at least finished.  If you look closely at the ornaments, the stamp is made up of lots of tiny snowflakes, you may need to click on the pic.  They are white embossed and I drew in strings for them.  Do you think I should have extended the string to the ribbon?
My card is for:
Less is More - let it snow
Addicted to Stamps - snowflakes
Kenny K's - Christmas hues of blues
Let's Ink it Up - Christmas
Totally Gorjuss - let it snow


  1. This is so pretty Anne, love the sponging and how you made the baubles from snowflakes. No I like the 'strings' as they are :O) Viv xx

  2. Lovely card - in answer to your question, no I don't think you need to extend the hanging strings to your baubles - however, you might (if you make another) want to consider placing the ribbon across the top of the bauble strings - just a thought


  3. Lovely card. I know, sometimes just is there, even when you didnt used it. Maybe the red is trying to tell you it want to be used?

    And no, I think the strings are perfect this way. A bow wouldnt have added anything.

  4. Beautiful snowflake baubles Anne. I would perhaps move the ribbon down to the top of the strings - but it's fine as it is! xx

  5. Beautiful design and colour combo. Thanks for sharing with us at LIIU, good luck. Hugs Suzanne

  6. Well I kinda like strings attached to something or other... but I think the baubles are great!
    Great inking too Anne, but I can empathise with discovering inky marks where they shouldn't be! It happens to me all the time!
    Thanks so much

  7. Love your snowflake baubles. x

  8. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Hugs~

  9. Your snowflake baubles look great. I know what you mean about smudges just appearing. I had some yellow smudges appear so I just couldn't leave yellow snow!

  10. Beautiful card...thanks for joining us this week at KKKG's challenge!

  11. I think cos the strings are to the top of th emat, you get away with it. I'm a bt of a stickler for ending tstrings at a point, rather than mid air!
    Super baubles

    Many thanks
