Less is More # 79

Good Morning All!
I hope I find you well. The weather here has been wonderful. Noneof the storms that other parts of the country have had and, although we`ve had showers forecast, that`s all we have had. Just the odd light shower. How lucky are we?
Onto this weeks challenge at Simply Less is More. As it`s the first week of a new month, it`s a colour challenge and the colours are...Blue & Green.
I knew just what I was going to do but then I made the mistake of peeking at the other entries and found that someone else had beat me to it. After several failed attempts to try something else I reverted to plan A. Apologies if anyone thinks I`ve copied. I really did try to come up with something else :(
 After my extremely early trip to the craft fair last saturday, I went back on the correct day (sunday) and had a fabby time spending my pennies and just browsing all the lovely goodies on sale. One of the things I bought was this die from Memory Box. I`ve never used MB dies before but they are fabulous. No spoiling your die cut trying to ease it out of the die, they literally just fall out, wonderful.
Anyway I`m waffling. I stamped a script stamp from Indigo Blu in baby blue Versa colour.
Cut out two of the die cuts, one in blue and one in green and chopped the heads off. I added Glossy Accents to the blue flower heads and, when dry, placed them on the stem.
The sentiment is a mix of Waltzing Mouse ( wishes) and Layers of Color ( birthday).

Enjoy the rest of your day.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  1. LOVE everything about this card Lynne. Great placement and the script background and lovely fonts of the sentiment, together with the elegant flower make this one classy card. Love how you rounded the corners too.

  3. This is gorgeous! I cannot believe I don't own that beautiful die but after seeing what you have done with it! FYI: I refuse to look at other LIM entrants before I post...it's too intimidating!
