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.

Stunning cards Debby! Happy new year to you.

Kathleen said...

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.
