Less is more - Sketch for week 78

Hello there

Well it's Friday and the weekend is nearly here, hurrah!

Firstly, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to Mandi and Chrissie for showcasing my card last week. It was such a surprise and a big boost to my confidence.  It was only the week before that my DH asked if I'd ever been showcased and I said not yet.

The Less is More challenge this week is a sketch.  Sometimes with sketches I decide that I want to do something unusual with it and fail miserably so this week I've just stuck to the straightforward sketch and enjoyed making some cards that I'm pleased with.

This one is my favourite as I love that butterfly sticker.  Hmm, just realised there's no scallop border on this one, think I'll have my showcase badge stripped from me :-(

This one uses my Martha Stewart hydrangea punches to make a faux embossed look.  And I dragged out my lightbox to do the embossed border with an old fashioned brass stencil because as usual I didn't plan ahead and stuck the flowers onto the base card before thinking how I would add the scallop.

Another piece of patterned wrapping paper, gold peel off border this time and EK Success punch tucked under the edge.  See, I do learn eventually!

It looks like the weather here in the south of England will be suitable for crafting this weekend (such a hardship) so enjoy yourselves.  I wonder what colour we'll have tomorrow, can't wait to fnd out.

Bye for now.
