Less is Best

Less is best is definitely my thought when it comes to making a birthday card for my husband. He is definitely not one for fancy ribbon or any too elaborate, so this simple card is perfect for him. It looked a little too flat to start with so I just stamped a few extra images on separate card, cut then out and popped them on with a few dimensionals to give a bit more depth. The leaves are this week's challenge at Just Add Ink.

Project Recipe
Stamps: French foliage and Curly cute (both retiring)
Card: More mustard, riding hood red and river rock (all retiring)
Ink: more mustard, choc chip and riding hood red

It is always an honour to be asked to be a guest designer, although a little scary too. This week's challenge at Sunny challenges is to use retiring products along with the sketch. This has been one of my all time favourite stamps sets that I will be sorry to see go. The colours are also retiring at the end of the month.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Elements of Style and curly cute
Card: Bravo burgundy, baja breeze and river rock
Ink: bravo burgundy and baja breeze
Accessories: Vintage wallpaper embossing folder (retiring) self adhesive pearls, labels die and watercolour pencils (retiring)
