Less is More #41 Leaves.

Hello All!
First of all can make massive apologies for my lack of blogging and commenting this past week. Time has just ran away from me. I do hope none of you were holding your breath for my second LiM card either, you might be a strange purple colour by now. I did make one, just didn`t have time to photograph it in daylight,grr.
I`d also like to welcome my new followers, Hi and thank you for choosing my blog to follow.

Right, onto this weeks challenge at Less is More which is a one layer card using leaves.
 At last, a card I`m really pleased with.
I used off white card from Papermill Direct cut to 5x5. Using a rectangle nestie I`ve embossed in the centre and masked that off using post it`s.
The background colour is Versacolor Sand Beige sponged on.
The leaves are a mixture of Papertrey Inc, Hero Arts and My Minds Eye stamped in Versacolor Evergreen, Brown,Marigold, Orange and Burgundy.
The sentiment is  Flourishes Tag Lines stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black.
Hopefully I`ll get to do a lot more commenting this week, there are already some fabulous entries, not least from Mandi and Chrissie with their beautiful inspiration cards.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. Hi Lynn, this is totally gorgeous...what pretty colours and I'm very envious of your nestie embossed frame, I just can't seem to get the right sandwich in my big shot to do this and then the thing moves at the last minute!! Do you have any tips?

  34. This is fab, and I love the idea of embossing in the middle of a card with the nesties... I'll be giving that a go. Really love the leaf stamps too - i often look at leaf stamps in shops and feel unsure what to do with them, this just shows hoe gorgeous they can look. Following :)
