SOMETIMES IT PAYS TO WAIT...

Back again with another post for a few challenges and I'm glad I waited until today because it's meant that 3 challenges I was struggling with can now be combined with the Less is More Challenge and Yippee ... I love it when it all works out.

Unfortunately I think I'm using the same colours as the last 2 posts ... note to self - put these colours AWAY! Basically I was using what was on my desk to make this card hence the similar colours!


Challenges:
Less is More - THEME: 3 colours (Turquoise, Yellow & Grey)
CAS-ual Fridays - THEME: 3 of something or a Third (colours, Stripes, Sequins)
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
CAS(E) This Sketch
CAS Colours & Sketches (I've tried to match the colours as close as I could with what I have)

Materials Used:
Clearly Besotted: Hello word die (double layered and glitzed with clear embossing powder
MFT Die-Namics - Pierced Rectangle Stax
Memory Box: Wave stencil
Distress Inks
Sequins - Doodlebug

Three Colour or Three Shades of One Colour


Ok that's all for me today. I have my parents arriving any time for the night as I'm taking my dad on a watercolour painting class ... he's the painter and I'm hoping to pick up some tips! Wish me luck ... I'll need it!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and catch up with you all soon.

  5. Always admire your cards Sarah. Love the effect the wave stencil gives and I'm jealous of your hello die, always seems to be out of stock.
