Less is More (and Simples Sunday - a day early!)

Less is More has a guest designer Hannelie (or Desert Diva) this week and, to acknowledge her blog name, the challenge is SAND. It doesn't have to be the colour, it can be anything related to sand but as you can see I have gone for the colour element!
I've kept the design simple for two reasons - one being I didn't have a lot of time this morning and secondly because I don't have a Simples Sunday card this week so this one can be doubled up as Less is More & Simples Saturday!!
If you're wondering about the colour I've used it's Baked Brown Sugar, a brand new colour from SU which will be available on Tuesday with the new catalogue launch. I took a strip of cardstock and diecut both sides with an Adorning Accents Edgelits die, then matted a piece of Very Vanilla on top before tying round some Baker's Twine. I stamped the image from Love & Sympathy in Baked Brown Sugar onto a Neutrals Ivory card blank before matting the panel on top. To finish the card a sentiment, from Petite Pairs and again in Baked Brown Sugar, was stamped on the Very Vanilla.
I have a special 'afternoon tea' to go to tomorrow (provided by my lovely sister of course!) to celebrate my Mum's 92nd birthday. She will have her two daughters, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren there and I have a feeling it could be a bit hectic :0)
Whatever you're doing have a great weekend and I'll be back soon x
