Less is More week 111-theme

Wet,wild and cold brrr.... Hi everyone where is the lovely spring weather eh? We had a quiet weekend after the excesses of Mother's Day and Charlie's birthday weekend and had great fun this morning with the arrival of our new furniture:) Living in a Victorian town house poses problems with the delivery of furniture, but luckily our semi basement window comes out and just as I was worrying that we were in possession of 3 sofas, 3 armchairs and 2 very large footstools, the charity shop boys arrived to take away the old suite. So I am writing this from the depths of one of my new sofa's and very nice it is too! Anyway time for a new challenge over at Less is More and this week it's a THEME:

Whilst keeping your card Clean and Simple we would like you to
Frame it!
Some part of your design should contain a frame of some description, it could be stamped, drawn,  doodled, die-cut or whatever your imagination dictates.

Here is what I came up with:

I cut a distressed frame with my Silhouette and on a piece of card stamped the hares, a freebie from Craft Stamper and added some foliage with a CI stamp. I dusted some blue ink for the sky and attached it behind the frame and popped it onto the card.

This is also cut on my Silhouette and I loved it but thought it probably wasn't CAS enough. It was a white linen base card and the cut out is white card which shows up a different tone. Butterfly stamped and glittered with white/silver embossing glitter.

I'd like to welcome Bev as a new follower and thanks for choosing me! See you soon for the new ATSM challenge on Wednesday:)

It is definitely cold and miserable (or as we say in Scotland, dreich!)
Your cards are a breath of fresh air and the first, with the March hares is adorable.
Beautiful creations.
Keep cosy!
