ABC Challenge - K is for...

This week at the ABC Challenge, we'd like you to 'Keep it simple'...and resist the temptation to use all of your lovely papers and embellishments...for the letter 'K'...less is definitely more! I've kept my wallet card really simple, to make a real feature of the gorgeous 'Constellations' stamp by Penny Black. I've heat embossed the image, with pearl blue powder, on baby blue card, and mounting it very simply on navy card, on a background of the same baby blue card embossed with the 'Swiss Dots' folder, and tied a bow of navy ribbon down the side.


So, clear away your clutter, and get back to basics...
