Less is More #289

Hi there, time for some more fun at Less is More with a new
The theme we've chosen is 'Something FRENCH'

Just the one from me for this week as I completely ran out of time - 
actually I was too busy playing with my Brushos, having learnt some
new tricks at the HLS retreat and I couldn't tear myself away from all
the wonderful colours and patterns they create. Think I'm 'hooked'!

Using the Je T'aime stamp set from Clearly Besotted I stamped the lower half of 
my card with the Eiffel Tower, rotating it up and down for added interest. In keeping 
with the colours of the French flag I've stamped the words in those colours too. 
As luck would have it I spotted the 'Bonjour' sentiment in the Lawn Fawn Gleeful 
Gardens set that was on my desk so that was added too. 

The 'Paris' speech bubble is left over from a previous Honey I Shrunk The Kit set 
and I've 'cheekily' inlaid it among the images and sentiments. 
To finish the red, white and blue French theme I found some matching bakers twine 
and added a couple of glossy hearts die-cut from a mini Paper Smooches die set. 

The theme at Time Out Challenges is 

'Holidays with the Optional Twist of No Stamping' 
(stamped sentiments allowed)

I've certainly NOT twisted here but I think my card has a definite 'holiday' feel
about it so I'd like to pop it in at Time Out too.

Grab Our Badge!

As always thanks for calling by my blog and I'll be back tomorrow
with another new challenge for AAA Cards. 



  1. Oh wow Sarah.This looks amazing! My hat off to you do for creating so much interest in only one layer!

  2. I love the energy and visual interest you've created! Using the Eiffel Tower as a background stamp looks so fab with the bolder sentiment stamping on top. Fantastic card! I'm still jealous of your time at the HLS retreat. Next year...! Have a super week :)

  3. A fun and modern take on the theme this week

    Have a great weekend

  9. Bravo! What a treat for the eyes this card is Sarah. Loads to look at and, I hate to admit that I totally missed the Eiffel Towers in the background when I first looked at this...doh! I adore what you did with them though. Love that you incorporated the French flag colours too. Ha! You have done really well to tear yourself away from your brushos.
