Less Is More & Retro Sketches

Hi everyone, hope you are all having a lovely bank holiday.

Just a quick post today as I'm taking my children to a birthday party (lovely!!) I wanted to show you the card I made for Less is More and Retro Sketches.

Less is More challenge this week is a colour challenge and Mandi and Chrissie have picked YELLOW, I have to say I'm not a big yellow card maker, but I am quite pleased with how it's turned out.  Also when I say this weeks Retro Sketch challenge I put the two together and hey presto.


Here is my card...












































The papers are from two K & Co pads I've had ages.  I stamped and Paula Pascual flower onto some Craftwork Cards embossed card and then paper pieced the petals. I then added glossy accents to the petals and the Candi to give it a nice shine. I did want more petals to hang over the edge, but didn't quite work out.


Anyway I hope you like it, Mandi and Chrissie, I think you've converted me to a yellow crafter.


Bye for now
