Simply Less is More # 166

Hi there, I hope I find you well.

It`s saturday once again, where do the days go, and that means it`s time for another challenge at Simply Less is More. It`s colour week this week and the girls have chosen,
                                             A TOUCH OF TURQUOISE
I must admit turquoise is my least favourite colour which is probably why I have no ink whatsoever resembling that shade.It did dawn on me afterwards that I could have used markers for stamping but by then I`d already made my card. Never mind, here is what I came up with,

I didn`t want to many layers on my card so I ran the card base through the Cuttlebug with this stripey EF from Darice. I love this folder, it`s a good size which means I can do the whole card in one go.
I made the tag using a Die-namics die and punched a hole in the top.
I found a small piece of turquoise striped paper from Pink Petticoat
in my  bit box and used it along the bottom of the tag.
I also managed to find some matching card for the Happy Birthday using dies from Britannia dies.
A piece of narrow ribbon and a few small gems and Voila!
It reminds me a bit of a beach hut. Maybe thats because I`m longing for warm sunshine and sand between my toes.
Right, gotta go...I`ve a pile of ironing with my name on it...oh joy!

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
