Simply Less is More # 240

Hello There !

A nice relaxed weekend for me this week, I hope yours is the same.

It`s colour week over at the Simply Less is More Challenge 
and this time we have a fab combination of GREEN & GOLD
I got a bit carried away and made 3 cards

This one I`m more pleased with than the others.
I started by sponging 3 different green inks onto white card and cutting out the circles with a Nestie die.
The leaf is Poppystamps Lorelai Leaf cut from gold mirror card
The Smile word is from Penny Black also cut from gold card

This one is made from 2 shades of green and some gold paper with fern leaves punched out
The sentiment is Waltzing Mouse stamped in clear ink and embossed in gold EP

This one is my least favourite
The stamp is from Penny Black stamped and embossed in gold EP onto dark green card.
I made a panel for the front of my card and cut a circle into it with a nestie die.
The sentiment is by Creative Expressions also embossed in gold EP

My craft room needs some serious reorganisation. At the moment I`m at the sitting and looking at it stage. When I work out where to start I`ll let you know .

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. These are stunning Lynne! I love the ombre effect on the first one and the Xmas card with the ferns makes me want to case it! I love the swirly wreath as well it really pops against the dark green.
    Good luck with your craft room reorganisation! I'm loving mine and keeping it very tidy :0)
