I didn't really feel like colouring today, so I've made a couple of simple cards for this week's Less is More challenge, which is to combine 3 past challenges.
Struggled with the photos a bit, I suspect hubby has been playing with the settings on the camera... will have to fiddle with it later, see if I can figure it out!
For my first card I've used an MFT flower die on black core'dinations, and used the 'leftover' piece instead of the flowers - I saw Jenny do the same with her flower die ages ago and have been meaning to try it ever since. I stuck some small scraps of paper (Papermania capsule) behind each flower cut out and added some gems. The sentiment is Stampin' Up, stamped onto pale pink linen card, which was also used for the mat behind the flower panel.
Combined past challenges for my first card: week 43 bit of bling, week 51 cut it out (aperture or hole), week 55 punches or die cuts.
And for my second card I used a Memory Box die called Dancing Tulips - it's supposed to have a large leaf too but I didn't use that bit... not sure why! Used some pink card from my scraps, a Stampin' Up sentiment and some gingham ribbon from my stash.
Combined past challenges for my second card: week 1 pink, black & white, week 12 off centre, week 42 silhouette.
Dex is still coping fine with the yucky chicken pox spots - he's even got one on the inside of his eye and it's still not bothering him... strange child! It's bound to start getting itchy soon, we can't be this lucky with it for long lol! Will be round to catch up with you all later, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
