HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISSIE

Morning Limettes hope you've had a good week.

Today it's our wonderful leader Chrissie's birthday so
it's an 'Anything Goes' week at Less is More but still CAS

I seem to remember Chrissie saying she is involved with a choir
and she often uses images with birds so I wanted to combine the two


Just noticed that I don't do any paper-piecing in ages but 
then have 2 cards in as many weeks with this technique!

The image, sentiment and pink paper are Pink Petticoat, 
the blue paper is from Doodlebug and I've finished with some 
gems, enamel dot and glamour dust for added sparkle.

The white panel and a strip of pink paper have been die-cut using
MFT Die-namics chevron dies then mounted on 3d foam pads.





For this card I decided florals are always 'safe' for feminine cards and I simply 
had to try out the newly released 'Sweet Rose' set from Clearly Besotted.

 I've 'cased' a fantastic card by Jennifer McGuire here and like Jennifer 
I've heat embossed the outline images onto vellum then coloured 
with Promarkers on the reverse before die-cutting.
The sentiment is also Clearly Besotted, Sweet Little Sentiments 
which is mounted on a sentiment strip from MFT Die-namics.
To finish I've added some gems from my stash and a Winkette of Stella.


I'm sure you'll all want to wish Chrissie a very happy day
so over to you now and I'll catch up with you soon.

  2. Two stunners today, Sarah! Such great paper-piecing, something I haven't done much of yet. I adore your floral card. I've not had chance to ink up my Sweet Rose set yet as my stash has been all over the place for the last week. I love the soft green card base, it's so pretty with the vellum roses xx
