The Word

Well we welcomed the New Year at a very posh do at Southampton it was lovely except from feeling yukky with this cold and yesterday we came home and I huddled in my corner and felt sorry for myself. Today I don't feel quite so awful and I'm trying to get back in the swing of things.
Last Friday before we left I noticed that the Less is More Word challenge was going on another week and since I wasn't feeling my best I had a go using the The Sketchy Challenge sketch but it could be classed as a bit busy.
So I made another.

The stamps have been sitting on my desk for months from My Paper World, not even sure why I decided to look at them. But I had a lightbulb moment that I could paper piece the flowers.  I used Baja Breeze from Stampin Up which I belive has now gone but I'm still have problems cutting into them and the sentiment is Stampin Up too. This card I reckon ticks all the right boxex for LIM.

  30. Two totally different card and both very classy but the second card is brilliant but, I have spent all day doing my entry for LIM and it is very similar to your idea on your second card, stamped stems and leaves and added flowers so now I may have to go back to the drawing board as I don't want anyone to think I have copied yours.
    Hope you are feeling better.
