Less is More - week 68 - Theme

....... and this week the theme at Less is More is make a card for " a Baby or a Child".
So, a 5inch square white pearl base card with a simple printed sentiment generated in Publisher.
The two tiny feet are punched out in the same card and mounted on white pearl and silver card twice.
Very simple and I hope very less is more.
I hope to be able to take part in more of these challenges now that I'm able to spend more time back home because less is more is very definitely my style!

close up of feet!
Thank you for taking the time to look.

Lining with inside pockets
Pockets are big enough for a mobile phone - I checked!

Fabric for frill was from
The pattern came from a fabulous book by Kay Whitt from
