Less is More #214

These week's are flying ... don't you think?
It'll be summer before we know it - but first up it's March
and the first challenge of the Month at Less is More

... and it's a colour one!
We'd like to see green and yellow

To be honest these aren't my favourite colour combos ...
may not be apparent though as I've gone a bit mad producing a few!
Obviously there's lots of shades of these colours so here's 
what I came up with:

These first 2 were made at the same time and by cropping
my flower panel slightly it was easy to make the second one so
a 2 for 1 deal I guess!

Card Recipe:
Uniko Studio: Simply Said Birthday
Uniko Studio: Flower Power #5 & #6
Mama Elephant: Index Card dies
Doodlebug Sprinkles

I don't often get chance to to join my teamies at Addicted to Stamps & More
but as it's a CAS challenge I think my card should fit in ok!


Well we said green and yellow so I've gone BOLD with this one!

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: On The Line Die & Home Sweet Home stamp set
Lil'inkers: Stitched Sun Die
Uniko Studio: Background Builders - Vines 
(super delicate tone on tone images to the green panel)
Doodlebug sprinkles

Next up ... for St Patrick's day which is coming up this month

Card Recipe:
Crafts Too: Lattice Embossing Folder
Doodlebug: Design paper 
Clearly Besotted: Sentiment
WPlus9: Heart Die
Uniko Studio: Stem Die (Beautiful Blooms I)
MFT Die-Namics: Mini Banners, Fishtail Flags & Pierced Rectangles

I'd like to enter this card over at CAS(E) this Sketch

I'm off to a family wedding in Harrogate this weekend so I'll have
to miss out on commenting until I'm back during the week.
Can't wait to see your super sunny creations though so no slacking!

Thanks as always for stopping by and have a superb weekend.

  17. Love all the cards here, such a great treat to the eyes, and the colors are all gorgeous Sarah!

  18. Amazing interpretation of colour combination dear Sarah. I've never thought that roses in this two colours can achieve so wonderful effect. :-)) Also the Christmas card from the previous post is superb.
    Enjoy the week, Sonja

  19. Sarah, I actually had a very "mod" dress with these colors in the 70's...not sure why 'cause they're not my favorite either :) However, in spite of them being less than your favorite, your designs are over the top gorgeous!

  20. You might not like green and flower but you've done a great job with them. Lovely bright cards - ideal for Spring!!

  21. A brilliant set of cards and especially love the second one, gorgeous shades of yellow and green.
