Less is More wk 4 ...3 squares.

Happy saturday everyone.

This weeks on Less is More we have to make a card with 3 squares on.
I must admit I`ve really struggled with this one. I`m not particularly happy with my card, one of my squares has a wonky border that I didn`t notice until I uploaded it onto here. I might do another one yet.

The sentiment is computer generated.
I`ve scored some lines above and below the sentiment to take the plainess off a bit.
The flower stamps are Waltzing Mouse Big Blooms and I have used the smaller of the flowers.
Two have been stamped in Versacolor, Peony and Orchid and the 3rd in Memento Rose Bud.
They were cut out with a square punch and matted ( badly) onto some burgundy card. They have been placed using foam pads.

Once again I want to thank Mandi and Chrissie for starting this challenge blog. I had a record 52 comments for my last submission. Thank you to all of you who came to visit my little blog and left a comment. I`m chuffed to bits.
I did try to visit everyone and leave a comment and if I missed you out I`m really sorry, it wasn`t deliberate. To all those who only got a two word comment I apologise too. It`s not that  your cards weren`t fabulous it`s just that after the first 30 or so my fingers start to give up. It did get a bit like the `Magic Porridge Pot` in asmuch as the more comments I left, the more entries there were. I promise to do better this week :)

To all of you who sympathised with my cremated chicken last week, it was fine. A bit dry and a lot darker than it should have been but it was edible. I am much more relaxed today thank goodness.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  21. Beautiful card, Lynne. I love those flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those flowers are gorgeous and the colours are just right. If i was to change one thing, I'd have brought the sentiment down to be just above the squares.

    I do think you're being hard on yourself though and I'd have never noticed a wonky square!

  31. Great card. I nearlly done my card in different shades of blue, and also one of my squares is a bit wonky, but eh... it's hand made. Like the idea of the embossed lines. Finishes the card off lovely. xx

  38. Removed because i had made a few spelling mistakes which i couldn't correct lol!!! Well it is very early in the morning and i am rather tired... Try again...

    Really loving the graduated colours and the dark layers which bring your card to life. Don't think i would have embossed the lines as they take the focus away from your images. That said, a fantastic contemporary card:-)

  42. Called by the other day very quickly to look but just HAD to come back to say the lines are fine. I wouldn't have noticed. I worry about things like that too but you must allow for the beauty of little imperfections and the handmade look. Great card - be proud!

  43. I love using the scoring board to liven up a plain card, it really works well. Love the colours you've used here. I was unsure about matting my three squares, wasn't sure if that would then make it six squares, lol!!!!

  51. I think this week you've broken your comments record again, and deservedly so for this lovely card! I like the way you've used the three different shades of pink for the flowers, and the embossed lines set them off beautifully. And I didn't notice any wonky bits either! Lynne x
