This week's Less is More challenge is to create cards with cards with little or no symmetry but perfect balance. PTI's Make it Monday challenge is to create something with a hand drawn frame. This card is the result of the combination of the two.
I have to laugh at myself. I watched Nicole Heady's wonderful technique video in which she demonstrates how to make a hand drawn frame. Well, the video is great and the technique looks easy. This card is the result of my FIFTH attempt. I just could not get the corners right. In the end, I cheated a little and put half pearls in the corners because I was not satisfied with my corners on any of my attempts. Nichole's is perfect and gorgeous - mine - not so much. I do love the way the card turned out though. I really like the addition of the DMC thread on the buttons. It gives the buttons a "sunflower" feel.
