Less is More #238

OM Goodness! Where has this week gone! Simply flying by! 

So it's time for a new challenge at 
Less is More
and we have a sketch for you this week so hope you enjoy it.

Just the one card from me this week followed by the sketch and because there's 
just one I thought I'd be super clever and make a trio challenge combo post only to discover
I've missed the boat at Just Us Girls! I've never entered that challenged before
but I loved the colour combo of red, black and grey ... hence my choice of colours!

Using the Uniko Classic Number set I've stamped haphazardly in the 3 colours 
before adding the red diagonal panel with a heat-embossed sentiment by Clearly Besotted: 
Sweet Little Sentiments and the 'BOYS' is made up from the Uniko: Garlands Galore Set.
I've added a mini strip of black cardstock between the number panel and the red 
just for added detail and I couldn't resist the sprinkles; I was going to stick with 
3 on the left but if I hold my hand up the othersare covering a little mis-hap 
with embossing powder! Grrr!


I'd like to link this up at CASology where it's a 'Number' theme
My brothers little boys are back at school soon with the youngest
starting out in reception this year so had to include them both on the card!

Before you grab your stamps and card there's more inspiration over on the Less is More blog.

Have fun, a great week and thanks as always for calling by!
