The clue is in the title as to what I'm posting today ........ yes it's a birthday card and it's for the girls over at Less is More. This fabulous weekly Blog challenge is 3 years old ...... congratulations ladies and thanks for all your hard work in putting together all the fun challenges each week.
It's a COLOUR challenge this week and it's .....
There's lots of fab inspiration over on the challenge blog, with some special guest designers too.
Here's what I've come up with ......
I've had this Memory Box die for a while and thought it was about time it came out of the packaging. The rainbow bit is all the colours behind the cut out circles ....... each one coloured using a Copic Marker ...... really simple
The little sentiment in the centre is a Penny Black rubber stamp ...... so cute!
A bit of mat and layering and the card is done ...... very clean and simple. A little different from the first one I made
A bit too More is More I think ....... the idea was ok, but once it was finished I couldn't make my mind up about it ...... and when hubby said 'isn't that a bit too much for LIM' I thought maybe he was right, and made a new one - everyone's a critic eh!!!
The cute little balloons on this one were cut using the Penny Black die - uplifting (51-004), from various scraps of Core'dinantions cardstock (a great way to use up all those little bits of cardstock you just can't throw away)
I added some highlights using a white gel pen and did a spot of doodling on one of the balloons .....
Some natural twine bows finish them off and the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz set - Simple Sayings (CMS155). Too much? What do you think?
I'm on Grandma duties this afternoon ...... everyone's out so it's just me and the little guy. Time to have some fun I think.
Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your Thursday.
Until next time .......
