Less is More - blue & green

I've made today's card for this week's Less is More challenge, which is 'blue & green'... Now usually I really like these colours together, but I don't like how my card turned out at all!


I've used a stamp from Stamping Bella's 'funky barcodes' set - I won a voucher for Simon Says Stamp a while ago, and this is one of the things I chose.  It's stamped in Memento 'paris dusk', with the matching sentiment stamped in 'bamboo leaves'.  I added some blue and green gems from my stash, ribbon from a recent spend at Fantastic Ribbons and a punched butterfly.  The numbers were cut with sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies, and then coated in stickles.

So there's my slightly rubbish card for today!... Hope you've all had a lovely day :o)
