I'm back this morning with a card for the Less is More challenge which, this week, is a sketch (shown above right). I've been experimenting lately with mixing colours and 'not quite so simple' layouts so, for this challenge, I thought I would revert back to my type of cards and I have to say it's good to be back!!
I started this card with a strip of River Rock DSP from the Neutrals Paper Stack and embossed it using the oval from the Designer Frames Embossing set. I coloured the image from the new stamp set Fruit & Flowers, available in the Spring Mini, with River Rock and Cherry Cobbler markers and stamped once onto a piece of Whisper White then, without re-inking, stamped again three times to give a faded image around the original. This was punched out with the Extra-Large Oval punch and positioned in the frame. A piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding was tied around the panel before matting onto a DL card blank. The sentiment from Curly Cute was stamped directly onto the card blank in Cherry Cobbler. Thank you ladies, I'm loving this challenge!
I want to thank everyone for their get well wishes this week, they cheered me up no end. I decided to return to work on Friday, after being off all week, to be greeted by comments such as "you look very pale" and "you still sound awful" - which made me feel a whole lot better :0) Anyway, despite not having completely got rid of the bug, I am feeling a whole lot better than I did!!
Have a great weekend and come back to visit soon x
