Less is more - Week 12 - Off Centre

Right, so today it's 'Off Centre' at the http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/. Mmmm sounds easy, but it took me all morning to think this one up. A friend of mine has just become a grandma so the reason for the card was an obvious choice.
So, after doing a bit of shopping and a trip to B & Q, I cracked it! (I hope)
The base card is a pale blue dotty embossed card (that I found in the local garden centre who're selling all their card off, so it would have been rude not to buy it wouldn't it?), the ribbon and little brad (called a 'onesie' in USA) I found in a drawer just waiting to be used.
Right, now I'm off back into the sunshine to power up my batteries (I think I must be solar powered because I have more energy in the summer months!) Then it's a BBQ for tea and definitely break open the Pimms.Enjoy your day wherever you are and thank you for looking.
