Less is More wk 49

Hello All!
I hope I find you all healthy and happy.
After another busy weekend playing catchup I finally found sometime to get in the craft room to play along with the fabulous Less is More Challenge. Being the first saturday of the month it is a colour challenge this week,

                                                          Predominantly Purple
As purple, or more usually lilac, is a colour I use quite often,I was pleasantly chuffed when I logged on. 
Here is my card,
This is my second attempt. The first one I made using the same stamp (Papertrey Inc Fancy Flourishes) in white on a deep purple card but it was so pants I didn`t bother taking a piccy.
I simply stamped the image in Heliotrope by Versacolor and embossed using Lilac heat it up EP.
The sentiment is stamped and embossed the same but using 2 stamp sets, Best is from Layers of Color Happy Wishes set and Wishes is Waltzing Mouse Say it Loud Winter Wishes set.
I`ve added some lilac flat back pearls to finish.
Tried a ribbon on it but didn`t like it so there you have it Clean and Simple, just like me lol.


I do have an idea for another card, time allowing so watch this space.


Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. Lovely CAS card Lynne. Shame about the first one. Stamping with white ink can be such a nuisance. xxx

  25. I love this card-saw it on LIM and had to leave a comment-the swirl looks so good on the plain paper giving it a really classic CAS look and the little gems just add that subltle bit of bling-fab
