Very last minute for Less is More!

Nearly didn't make it, but found some time today to make a card for this week's challenge at Less is More, which is 'shades of grey'... not a colour I'd usually use but I'm quite happy with this one :o)


I found some textured grey cardstock that's probably been sat on the shelf for years and the spiral flowers are cut from felt.

Items Used
Birthday stamp - LOTV
'wishes' stamp - Stampin' Up (with the 'birthday' bit masked off)
Memory Box Lavish Branch die - MCH
Spiral flowers - might be MFT die but not sure!
Felt & silver pearls from my stash
Memento ink in Grey Flannel

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

What a beautiful card. Grey is not a colour that easily springs to mind for cardmaking, but it works wonderfully :o)

Such a gorgeous CAS card - I am so loving the LOTV big sentiments at the moment and I love how you have used it with the small 'wishes' stamp - fab idea!
Oh, and those rolled felt flowers are just wonderful - so tactile!

This is elegant. I've never made flowers like you have. These are so pretty made of felt...the texture of them looks gorgeous. How wide are the strips you use? I always figure they'll make my card too "fat" to mail! I love this card and on my screen it looks more lavendar than gray. :) --Gail
