Simply Less Is More challenge entry

Hi there,

Just a quickie to say that the girls have arrived and we are crafting like crazy - go figure!!


Being a speed of light crafter I have completed my Simply Less Is More challenge card for this week using their fab theme of "Shades of Blue" - which, although never my automatic colour of choice, I'm quite pleased with - check it out and please feel free to leave me a comment


Materials used:
  • 5" square 300gsm white card and envelope
  • 4.75" panel of dark blue card
  • 4.5" panel of light blue card
  • 4.25" panel of white 200gsm card
  • Post it's
  • Distress inks in Weathered Wood, Broken China and Chipped Saphire
  • Just for fun image inked in marvy blue
  • Sentiment inked in memento tuxedo black

Hope you like it - I'm quite pleased with the way this has turned out.
