Less is More - a touch of turquoise

Hello everyone :o)

Ooh, I've found time to make a card for Less is More again this week... wonder how long I can keep this up!  Their challenge is 'a touch of turquoise', which is one of those colours that confuses me a bit, much as I like it... so, I spent quite a while trying to decide what was too blue, or too green, to count as turquoise.  Hopefully this is ok!

I cut the 'thanks' die from the white piece of card first, then from turquoise, and then pieced it all back together.

Items Used
White linen cardstock - Papermill Direct
Doodlebug Textured Cardstock Assortment - Craft Mojo
Doodlebug Sequins Rainbow Assortment - Craft Mojo
MFT Die-namics Blueprints 13 - Craft Mojo
Paper Smooches Pretty Phrases (masked to use just 'so much') - Craft Mojo
Thanks die - Simon Says Stamp

Off for a little catch up with your blogs... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Fabulous! The stitching from the die, the inlaid die cut and the sequins are details that do sooo much for a card in person... if only photos could capture that! Brilliantly CAS! =)

Pia S said...

I like how you did the die cut sentiment, it looks like the turquoise is embedded in the white background paper. Nice!

This is a very stunning in lay card, definitely less is more! I'm with you on turquoise... too blue, too green, is that really aqua? Too complicated.

Annette said...

Fab card and I love the way you've jigsaw'd it back together again.
