Less is more

Two very quick cards from me today as hubby is working tonight, doing a 50th birthday party but he hasn't been told if the party is for a lady or a gent!! My solution......make one of each then he has a spare for the next time :)
The Less Is More challenge this week is 

This could be anything from off white to black with any shade of beige, brown or grey in between
This one is done in shades of beige and brown with off cuts from the latest down loads from Funky Hand which are Steam Funk and Funky Kraft Stash, both can be found by clicking the links.
This one is the black and off white colour combination. The ribbon is an off cut off my tip of a desk and the flower is cut from a lovely shimmer paper but I don't know where it's from (I think it might have been a sample from somewhere). The glittered numbers are by Papermania and the gems are from my box.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm getting my stuff ready this evening for a wedding fayre tomorrow and my plan for Sunday evening is TV and blog hopping, I'm seriously behind with WOYWW this week!

PS I just remembered that I haven't added it to Di's Snippet challenge!
