Less is More Week 83 - Colour 'Pink & Brown'

This week has been a little crazy for one reason or another. The girls went back to school on Wednesday; Mia started Reception and Bethan has moved into Year 4. They looked so much bigger than when they broke up for the summer; where does the time go eh?!

Mia with her "butter wouldn't melt" smile!

After struggling at first for ideas, I must admit I'm quite pleased with my entry for this week's Less is More challenge which is to use the colours brown and pink.
I thought the strip of pink was a bit too CAS and tried all sorts to 'lift' it; then reached for my favouritest embossing folder ever, Swiss dots, and added a band of embossing at the bottom which I think does the trick. What do you think?

Cardstock: From local craft shop
Stamps: Penny Black T for transparent 'Wishes...'
Punch: Woodware
Ink: Memento 'Rich Cocoa' 
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots'
