Less is more week 53 - Colour Aqua


I'm a bit late with my LIM card this week.  It's been so cold I really didn't want to spend too much time in my craft room (I live in a very old, draughty but beautiful cottage with single glazed windows and my room is above the garage making it especially hard to heat up).  But, as it's the first birthday for Chrissie and Mandi's fabulous challenge blog I couldn't miss this week. 

The them is the colour aqua.  Not a colour I use often so I took a tip from Chrissie and used the same ink pad as she did on her card - Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

The background is a beautiful stamp by Anna Griffin.  The sentiment is HoTP.  The flowers have all been cut out with my Cameo and coloured with the same Distress Ink.  I added the ribbon at the top because it looked a bit bottom heavy.  I hope this isn't too fussy for a less is more card.

That's it for now - my fingers are beginning to seize up. Stay warm!
