Less is More - pastel shades

Hello everyone :o)

Wow, that bug really wiped me out!  I've hardly done anything this week, just been too tired.  I really wanted to join in with Less is More though, so here's my attempt at 'pastel shades'...


My first play with that butterfly die that I was searching for.  I cut it from white card, and then from all the other colours, then pieced it back together... not totally successfully, as it didn't seem to want to go back together!  There are a couple of tiny gaps that are irritating me.

Items Used
Bellina Butterfly Ribbon die - Poppy Stamps
Sentiment & alphabet stamps - Paper Smooches
Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle
Stampin' Up Ink in Coastal Cabana

Off for another snooze... hope I'm back to normal tomorrow, need to get making again!

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sorry to hear you've been unwell Lisa but hope you'll be fighting fit again soon. A super duper card despite the bug. Great use of inlaid dies and pastels and you may want to link this one up at AAA Cards too as we're looking for inlaid dies there! Thanks for playing along at Less is More. Sarah x

Hope you are feeling better now; it's never nice having a bug! Well, even though you may be able to see a couple of gaps, I can't! You have inlaid the dies perfectly. A super card.
Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More.
