Less is More meets OLW

Good afternoon all!

I hope I find you all fit, healthy and happy. I certainly am not least because this is the first day of my week off work, yippee!!!

As it`s saturday it is ofcourse Less is More day and this week is a colour challenge. We have been asked to produce a card using shades of blue.
As you might have noticed I have been in blue mode recently so I was quite chuffed. I also mentioned in my last post that my Daughter`s Mother in Law died last Sunday evening after a long battle against cancer. She was only 58 which somehow makes it even more upsetting and I know that all the family are suffering at the moment. I have been wracking my brains all week trying to come with a suitable sympathy card to send and this weeks challenge made everything fall in to place.They are never easy cards to make so I hope I`ve done this justice. Here is my card,

I have used 3 stamps.
Delicate Branches from Inkadinkado stamped in Versacolor Baby Blue. It is very faint.
Elegant weeds from Hero Arts stamped in Memento Bahama Blue.
Autumn Hedgerow from Chocolate Baroque stamped in Memento Danube Blue.
The sentiment is from Papertrey also stamped in Danube blue.




For the purpose of the challenge I have left the card plain but to give to my daughter and son in law I`ve added a ribbon.

One Layer Wednesday # 60 is asking us to make a OL card using quck layers of ink by overlapping stamped images and/or sentiment without masking.




Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
