Happy 8th birthday Simply Less is More

Hello there,

It's Simply Less is More 8th birthday this month. My goodness the time has flown by. I remember seeing the link for this challenge on Sarita's blog and thinking I might as well give it a go. before then most of my cards were quite fussy with huge blousey bows on them. It was quite a shock to the system to make a card with barely anything on it. But I did it and have tried to join in as often as I can ever since.

The challenge this time is a colour one,

Here is my take on the colours.

My navy blue looks purple on my computer, I hope it looks better on yours.

I started by making a frame using 2 different brands of square dies, mounted on some very thin foam pads (cut down to size)
The leaf is cut from yellow card with foam pads here and there.
I cut the Hello from both colours card and mounted the navy onto the yellow. Not sure if you can see both colours in the pic but I couldn't get a better angle.

Dies from; Memory Box,Spellbinders, Amazon

I had a quick scroll through my blog earlier and found my first entry for Less is More

Not too bad for a first attempt.

Thanks for popping in X


  1. love the dark blue frame and dainty yellow sprig of flowers, perfect for the LIM challenge

  2. Beautiful CAS card love the frame and leaves-first card is brilliant for a first attempt--must admit I am coming round to CAS cards quite a bit too

  3. I adore your navy and blue card Lynne! That is such a great design with the angle on the frame perfectly highlighting that delicate frond. Ha ha! I was just like you before Less is More started - full of blousey bows and layers galore. I really struggle to add a bow now! Thank you for supporting the challenge through the years and thanks for joining in with us this time too xx

  4. Great use of our challenge colours and some wonderful interest from such a simple idea. I love the angle of the frame and the different dimension heights of the foliage. Thanks for being one of our regular participants at Less is More, Anita x
