Less is More - Week 71

Hi everyone

Hope you are all having a good weekend, the weather here is still rubbish.  My husband and kids have gone off camping in Bala, North Wales for a canoeing festival this weekend. They've met up with my brother in law and sister in law and two nephews and despite the weather they seem to be having a good time.

The reason I'm at home is that on Sunday I'm travelling down to Rugby for a crafty workshop with Jayne Nestorenko, the brains behind the Cute Companions and Adorables stamps and CD's.  I've been to a few now and they are wonderful and Jayne herself is a really really lovely person.

The house is really quiet without them, but I've managed to have a good sort out of my craft room and make my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge.  Mandi and Chrissie have challenged us this week to a one layer card using flourishes.  Here is my offering...

Due to the weather being so pants, its hard to get a good picture in natural light.  Think I'm going to invest in a light box!  The stamps and from Uniko Studio Fontiment Fancies - Swirls and Flourishes.  I've used just one stamp and gone round an imaginary circle alternating colours (I've used Memento Grape Jelly and Lulu Lavender - yes it's hard to tell but its purple).  The sentiment is from the Fontiments - Birthday set. I then went over the darker flourish with some ultra fine glitter.

Hope you like it.  Bye for now
