Less Is More Challenge - Week 61

This week's Less Is More Challenge is based on the following:
Such pretty colours, but it took me four failures to change tack altogether and come up with a card I was reasonably happy with:
This truly was 'Last Chance Saloon'!

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- Stampendous 'Agapanthus Cluster' stamped with SU 'Certain Celery' ink spot and some colouring using a 'Fuchsia Pink' Pro Marker

- sentiment stamped with a SU sentiment from the 'Sincere Salutations' set using Memento 'London Fog'

- the backing cards are SU Certain Celery and white card run round with the 'Fuchsia Pink' Pro Marker

- butterflies punched using a small Woodware punch from 'Certain Celery' and a scrap of card coloured again with 'Fuchsia Pink', with tiny pearls to finish

Hi Di

How can you say you are "reasonably happy" with this? I think it is brilliant and would be over the moon if I had made it!!

Love the colour combo.

Love Jules xx

Such a pretty card. I am just debating making a card for Lou's 2nd birthday - she loves Peppa pig so I think I shall "dumf" a Peppa pic for her. Still snow here so I am happy to craft in my warm sewing room. x Jo
