Less is More #230

Morning friends it's that time of the week again...
Saturday morning 8am UK time! 

New challenge at Less is More

This week we have a sketch for you and please feel free to flip/rotate it 
so long as we can see the that it resembles the original.

So here's my cards followed by the sketch

I've turned the sketch on it's head with the smaller panel at the top
and also used landscape rectangles rather than portrait ones. The images from
Paper Smooches: Briny Blue which are coloured using Stabilo Markers
with water, twinkled with Winks of Stella and Glossy Accents.
Rectangles die-cut using MFT Die-Namics pierced rectangle dies
and the 'birthday wishes' sentiment is from Clearly Besotted

It's an Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp
this week so I'm heading over there with my card too.

Here's another Christmas card - I'm trying to stick with my
New Years Resolution so my little box of Christmas cards is
steadily bulging but still a way to go!

A bit of a crazy image but it's to enter over at Merry Monday too
where they'd like us to use a 'funky' hat on our Christmas card this week.
I'm not sure about 'funky' but certainly 'silly'!

I've used Clearly Besotted: Let it snow stamps and a 
sentiment from Uniko: Simply Said Christmas
The cloudy sky is created using a home-made die-cut stencil
using Mama Elephant: Landscape Trio Dies and linked with
Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. To finish I've added some glamour dust
and glossy accents for added interest.

Ok crafty buddies it's your turn and let's see what you make
of this week's challenge. I'll be back a little later with another card
so if you've time to pop back I'd be very grateful.

Thanks as always for stopping by.
