'Shrink to fit'





The dare at Daring Cardmakers this week was 'shrink to fit' - you are not allowed to cover more than 5x5cm of your card with paper or embellishments, the rest of your card must be left plain. Mmmm that is quite a challenge!! This is my attempt, I was going to add a greeting (which is allowed) but I quite like the simplicity of it without one, what do you think?
