Less Is More.........White on While!!

Less is More is a new challenge this week.........

(Accents in metallic or B/W are perfectly acceptable)

I love white on white but found it difficult making it CAS, it is difficult to photograph, especially as it is still dark and with the constant rain. I think I've probably used more details far too much but think I will try again as some time during the week.

Less is More............Down Under!!

The new challenge at Less is More has a Guest Designer - Kylie is Australian so in her honour, the challenge is entitled
The only card I could use is obviously Tiddly Ink's Hang In There, I spent have my time upside down as a child (apparently) - now it makes me dizzy. Making this card was hilarious - I kept turning it upside down to colour it, I also nearly (not quite) stamped the sentiment the wrong way up!!! The material etc. are listed below - missing is the sentiment which is now off sale.
