Deck The Halls

Happy Halloween everyone.
Just a quick post from me tonight,
as I wait for the witches and warlocks to come trick or treating.

I finally found some time to play along at Less is More.
This week the theme is to add some string or twine.

It's really dark here in the afternoons so,
I have been experimenting with my photos, 
using coloured paper behind my card.
I think it helps to make it stand out more.
What do you think?

For the challenge I used this lovely, whispy, red twine - 
using a little sequin in the centre of the bow.

Less Is More - Use String Or Twine
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Addicted To Stamps And More - Clean And Simple
Cute Card Thursday - Sparkles

Stamp - Lili of the Valley, coloureed with Copics and Glamour Dust
Stripey DP (not sure of the make)     Twine.    Sequin

Gorgeous card Caroline, I love cute James Bear and wonderful colours.
The coloured background works really well on your photos, think I may have to give this a try, trouble is it would take me forever to choose which colour to use!
