Embrace The Day



This weeks Less Is More challenge for week 183 is a colour challenge so I have made a 6 x 6 inch card which I think meets the requirements.




Those colours look so refreshing ! The card base is grey bazzill card trimmed and scored to the correct size.




I have then used a Sizzix die to cut the leaves and flowers in the various colours again from Bazzill card.




Once cut the elements were embossed with a Tim Holtz embossing folder with a grungy spot theme.  They were then arranged and stuck in place.






I finished off the centre of the flower with a self adhesive pearl coloured with lime green alcohol ink.

Finishing touch was to stamp the sentiment in black Archival Ink as shown.  This means that it could be suitable for any occasion.
