Less Is More Challenge Card + Happy Mail!! :-D


Happy Saturday! I hope you're all having a fab weekend. Mine has got off to a great start! Firstly the lovely Torrey has made me a new blog header which I LOVE, did you notice it?!! 

My craft room cat, Mopsy, even has her own armchair! ;-) THANKS TORREY XXX

Secondly my birthday treat to myself from the fabulous Simon Says Stamp arrived, but before I show you that I am going to share a card I just made for the Less Is More Challenge.


The color of this card is as dreary as the weather lol. Actually I do like it but you wouldn't call it a happy color would you ;-)

I used my new Tim Holtz Wildflower Stamp Set and Versamark Ink to create a 'watermark' effect on the base card and the matching Wildflowers Die completes the card. I love how this has turned out and plan on making a few more in brighter, more spring like colours. 


Thanks for looking, 

and here is my Happy Mail! It is mainly filled Tim Holtz and Ranger Products to help with my latest dabbling in Mixed Media ;-)


I hope you're all having a fab weekend! 

Challenges:
 Less Is More   White space but not white



Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

I don't think this is a dreary colour at all, it looks so sophisticated to me. Lovely design and colour combo.
