Shrink to Fit

Friday already !
It's Kathy's turn on DCM and she has come up with this one Shrink to Fit I first thought oh, oh we have to get the shrink plastic out but no


"I used to be able to make cards with lots of "white space" around the designs, but lately when I've tried to do this my cards just look sooooo naked!
So this week I'd like you to think small - not small cards, but small spaces of embellishment on regular sized cards.
You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain"


I think she's been cheating herself that doesn't make up a 5x5 don't you think???
anyway this is my take on it very simple but golly does that look empty. Stamp by Crafty Individuals

Great card Ellen - and you are soooo naughty - I didn't cheat, I didn't, I didn't (stamps size 3)
I even took a photo of my embellishments to show how easily they fitted onto a 5x5 cm sq! It's on my blog.....
