Less is More #368 – GD CASE

Happy Easter weekend everyone!  There’s one more challenge at Less is More (LIM) to finish off the month of March.  We have two guest designers (GD) joining us.  Our January winner, Aileen of Colour and Sparkle, is our guest providing us with a beautiful inspiration card for our GD CASE challenge this fortnight.  Our next guest, Kylie of Addicted to Stamps, is also pulling double duties as this month’s sponsor Happy Little Stampers.









Here’s Aileen’s card to CASE.




And this is my card.


Stamped the flowers with black Memento ink on scraps of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics then die cut out with the coordinating dies.  Thanks was die cut from a scrap of silver foil paper and from black cardstock.  They were offset for a shadow effect.  All elements were assembled on a Smoky Slate stitched rectangle from my stash.  The panel was adhered to a split black on one side and white on the other side cardbase.  Added clear shimmer on the flowers and blue sequins to finish.

Another quick one from me.  But there are more beautiful inspirations from my teamies HERE.    Hope you will play along with us.  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a great day!
