Less Is More Week 129

Good Morning,

It's been a while since I have managed to join in with Less Is More on a Saturday morning, but this is the first weekend I have had in a while all to myself, so making the most of the crafting time!

The challenge this week is to feature hand made flowers.  It took a bit of pondering before I remebered a tutorial I found on Pinterest for twine tutorials.  You can see it here, it is by a very talented lady called Michelle of Lady of Leisure Ink.

Supplies Used:
Craftwork Cards - Twine
Uniko Studio - Time
Stampin Up - Distressing Tool
Button from my stash

Thanks for visiting
