Simply Less is More CITRUS

Hi there,
Well, not only am I back for the third week running, it's still Saturday. I'm feeling quite pleased with myself.

It's a colour challenge this week at Simply Less is More and our colours are CITRUS.

I love citrus colours, particularly orange and lime so that's what I've gone with.

I've used a little balloon stamp from Hobbycraft that I've had for a while and never inked.
I made a simple panel, masked my balloon off and chalked some pale blue around the image.
The cloud is by Memory Box and I've added a tiny sentiment from Personal Impressions.
The enamel dots are also from Hobbycraft.

In 1970 when I was 15 I was allowed to choose my own colour scheme and decorate my own bedroom.
I had orange walls and a lime green door. We were still in the Psychodelic period so it wasn't quite as bad as it sounds. I loved it then and I still love the colours together now. My taste in interior design however has calmed down somewhat, although I do still love colour.
 I do think my parents were very brave though ha ha.

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xxx  


  1. FAB .. you could also enter this over at DJKardKreations where Darnell has a NBUS challenge


  2. I came over from LIM. Such a crisp design! Great colouring...makes a fab card! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Gerrina

  3. This is fab! (I actually like the sound of your former bedroom colour scheme too!!) Love the colours and the hot air balloon image with the cloud floating over the top. Great job!

  4. That lime and orange make a fab colour combo and really pop against the soft blue, Lynne! Great to see you over at Less Is More :)

  5. Ooooh! The white space and delicate blue shading gives your card a really airy feel; perfect for that fab balloon stamp. The orange and green are super colours for it. (My bedroom used to be purple and lime green in the '70s) :-)
    Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More.
