Happy 3rd Birthday Less is More

Yippee! Simply Less is More is 3 years old this week. Although the time has gone past so quickly I can`t believe how much I`ve learned about CaS cards in the 3 years I`ve been playing along and how much better my designs are compared with the beginning. I must thank Chrissie, Mandi and ofcourse Jen for all their inspiration and guidance over the years.
Heres to the next 3 years :)

So...onto this weeks challenge. As it`s the first saturday of the month, it`s a colour challenge and boy what a challenge. The colour for this week is....

I must admit I did struggle for a while before coming up with this design. Although I`m not in the least a sloppy romantic, I do seem to be in Valentine mode at the moment so I thought I`d go with a non traditional Valentine heart.
I started with a 6x6 base card using White Linen Card from The Papermill, and made a panel slightly smaller.
I simply cut out the heart shape using Sizzix Die and after masking with post its I coloured using decorative chalks using more post its to get my lines sharp.
I then placed the panel using foam pads.
I finished off with a smaller heart cut from red Pearlised card run through with a CB EF.
The sentiment is computer generated.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
