Morning All
Thanks for stopping by; it's that time again!
The Less is More Challenge

This week we've got a sketch for you but still
clean and simple please

Here's what I've come up with and I'm still on with the celebratory cards
for exam results. Just happens to be a busy year in our house with son and daughter
both getting results in the last 2 weeks and lots of friends to congratulate too.

This one is for my daughter's boyfriend. 
Looking at it closely it's perhaps more of a 'passing your driving test' one
but I wanted to experiment with a new set from Paper Smooches (Metropolis).

I've stamped various images onto midnight blue cardstock using Versamark ink
 then heat embossed with WOW sparkling silver EP.
The sentiment is from the same set with the panel die-cut using MFT Die-namics Blueprints 15.
To finish I've fussy-cut the little car for added dimension and some sparkly gems for that bit of 'dazzle'

Next up is for one of Faye's best friends. This time I've made a frame using
MFT Die-namics pierced rectangles with the panel mounted on 3d foam pads.
The stamps are all Uniko Studio from the August release; Flower Power 6 and 
Sweet Baby. A bit more fussy-cutting here (not really my thing) but for dimension it works.
To finish the flowers and leaves are drizzled with a Wink of Stella and pearls from my stash.

I've used the colour palate from this week's ColourQ challenge 
so I'm heading across there with this card too.

Ok over to you talented, crafty people; hope you will take part in the challenge and 
I'll be popping across to your blogs during the week to see what fabulous cards you post.
