Now, can you imagine someone saying this is not "Less is More"? And wouldn't it look less complete without that turquoise frame? Oh well, maybe I'll try again, and actually manage to remember that it has to be a one-layer card next time! The inspiration for the colours came from the jacket of one of the kids I see each day when I pick up my daughter from school.
The second challenge is the CAS157 challenge at Splitcoaststampers. It's a sketch challenge and I wanted to do something different:
I also made this one, a little less, shall we say, unexpected:
I saw this colour combination at GEOX this morning. I added the coral - without it, I was left with a flowery yet masculine card - and who can you send THAT to?
