Less is More – Week 27

Phew, this week is getting more hectic, but hurrah holiday on Friday.  As I’ll be on holiday this will be my last LIM entry for a couple of weeks…but it will be great being away with family.

Our challenge at LIM Towers this week was to use the colours of my countries flag, now like Chrissie and Mandi I could of gone with either the red and white of the St Georges Cross or the Red White Blue of the Union Jack.

Red White Blue Flower Card (2)

As you can see I have gone with red, white and blue and used one of my favourite stamps of the moment a Hero Arts Cling Set called Dotted Flowers. This set is really versatile and looks equally fab just stamped or paper pieced onto patterned paper. The sentiment and small flowers are stamped directly onto the card base whilst the blue layer and large flower are raised up on foam pads to add some dimension. I can’t resist a little bit of bling so I’ve added Stickles to the dots of the large flower and also a blue button to the centre with some more Stickles, but I’m not sure the sparkle shows in the picture.

Thanks for stopping by.

Items: White Hessian Card from stash, Hero Arts Dotted Flowers cling Stamps, Sentiment from Kaisercraft, Memento inkpads in Danube Blue and Ladybug, Waterbrush and Christmas Red Stickles.
