Less is more!

'Less is more' is a saying I should use more often! I started to assemble this card and it was all going well. So why oh why can I not just leave well alone? Why add 'just one more thing' to an over fussy card? I suppose it's the same as the last chocolate that makes you feel ill, nothing to do with the other 25 that I stuffed down beforehand eh? I did figure I could get away with it as it was for my nieces 6th birthday, and being a little Princess, the more sparkle, glitter, bling, flowers and pink the better.
So off hubby went with cards and gifts, and I asked him if she liked the card? And yes she did, but not as much as the other card I sent - a Kanban kit which took all of 5 minutes to pop the pieces out and glue together! Typical eh?
List of goodies:
Bildmalarna stamp from Bunny Zoes,
DP is Bella Blvd from The Hobby House as are the pearls,
flowers are Prima, and another of the gorgeous crystal heart pins from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie.
She's coloured with DI's as is usual.
Thank you for looking
