Simply Less is More # 222

Hello There !
Just popping in to share my card for this weeks Simply Less is More Challenge
It`s colour week and this time we are asked to create a card using opposite sides of the colour wheel,

I spent part of yesterday and quite a bit of today, stamping, embossing, masking and sponging and finished up with such a rubbish card it went in the bin. Then I was at a loss to know what to do.
 A bit of raking about and umming and arring and this appeared,

I think I`m pleased with it.
Obviously I`ve gone with pink and lime green.
I started by cutting a panel for my card front and rounding the corners.
I used Kaisercraft Stains stamp with Lime Green Versacolour ink for the background
 The feather is from Wplus9 Fanciful Feathers die set cut from a small piece of white linen card and sponged with Spun Sugar DI. I then went along the edges with Versacolor Orchid.
Smile is from a Penny Black die set also cut from a scrap of card.
I finished off with some small drops of Dovecraft 3D Pearl Effects.

Not a lot to tell you this week really although I did get a lesson in grammar from Ruby last thursday.
She had some clear plastic shapes that she`d coloured with glass pens to look like stained glass and said I could have one or two. After I`d chosen mine Ruby was left with a cat and a fish which she placed one on top of the other and asked her mum what would you call it. Mum said it could be a catfish and I said it could be a cat that had eaten a fish.
Ruby gave me a look of absolute despair and said " Grandma, that`s a sentence not a name"
That`s me told then.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
