Time for a new Challenge at Less Is More! And it's our 9th birthday!!!!! Woo Hoo! Less Is More is definitely responsible for my love of the Clean & Simple genre of card making. I was so afraid of it wasy back then, and one layer cards just terrified me. Fast forward 9 years, and now those things are my prefecrence. I am so glad you were born, LIM. Thanks Chrissie and Mandi for bringing this wonderful challenge into the cardmaking world!

We have a very fun theme for this challenge: Less (tiny and few).
So we are challenging you to think about how small you can go with your images and sentiments, and how few you can use too!

Our awesome sponsor for February is Uniko. Uniko just happens to be celebrating their 8th birthday this month! So lots to celebrate! Go visit the Uniko Store and check out the fabulous new release! 

Bev Brown, lovely owner of Uniko, is our Guest Designer for our dual birthday challenge.

For my card, I used an image from Uniko's Paradise Hummingbird, colored it with SU markers, and stamped it on a 110# Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with WOS to give it some sparkle, added a sentiment from the same set and embossed the wonky circle from MFT to frame it out.

Please head over to the Less Is More Blog and see what the Design Team has created for your inspiration. I hope you'll play along with us to share your creations and for a chance to win. Remember to keep your design Clean And Simple.

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space. All challenge details are on the Less Is More blog. Good Luck!
