I had a little play with some scraps of card. This is the result. I actually quite like this one. I am submitting this to Less is More again and One Stitch at a Time, punch it.
I used Woodware, X-Cut & Dovecraft punches, Cuttlebug dots & scraps of card.

A very quick Less is More post to push up Mandy and Chissie's numbers. It's a variation of the last Christmas card theme. Good luck ladies.
