Hi lovely bloggers, I'm  hoping you are all safe, well, and warm, wherever you are.
I was determined to enter the Less Is More challenge this week, as it's a while since I've joined in, due to a holiday and other things which got in the way.  
Chrissie and Jen's theme is "USE BEADS", and although I have lots of beads, I very rarely use them on my cards, so I really had to get my thinking cap on for this one, and I'm still not totally happy with the result! I will let you be the judge, so here it is:-

The colours are much more attractive IRL (honest!). 
To create the heart I used a small, old, metal cookie-cutter (originally used for shaping Fimo clay) - placed it on a piece of card, then squeezed lots of Glossy Accents into the bottom of the cutter, adding a deep layer of red micro beads, then more Glossy Accents, topped with coloured seed beads and pearls, and a sprinkling of Glamour Dust.
After the glue had set, the heart was removed from the cutter and 
peeled off the card. I was amazed how easily it came out!
The double frame was created with Nestie Classic Squares (Small).
Sentiment - from the beautiful Chocolate Baroque "Fleurs et Parfum de Paris" set, inked with Stampin' Up Real Red.

Thanks so much for visiting -
