Less is More - Sketch

Hi everyone, hope you have all had a good day.  Wednesday is nearly over so roll on the weekend.  I have however had quite a good day.  Some may know that I work in a Special School for children with complex needs and today I was down in the Primary end of school.  This afternoon they had a visit from the Fire Service in their lovely red fire engine, this made most of the female staff a little bit giggly (including myself), but we had a good afternoon and the kids loved it.

Anyway enough rambling.  It's my friend's birthday on Saturday so I thought I would combine that with the Less is More challenge.  This week Mandi and Chrissie want us to work with a sketch...

I do like working with sketches, especially when Mr Mojo has gone away for a few days, and here is my card...

I wanted to make something really bright and colourful (think I'm ready for a change in season), so I randomly stamped Paula Pascual stamps with various memento colours.  I then circle punched the solid flowers and overlayed them adding glossy accents to give them more shine.  I am quite pleased with the overall effect.

Hope you like it.  I haven't had much time to visit your cards this week, but I'm hoping that when the kids go to bed to sit a while and have a good old nosey.

Bye for now.
