Less is More #302

Morning LIMettes it's time for another challenge over at Less is More
and it's the dreaded one layer one! I'm sure you'll be up for the challenge
though as you always manage to WOW us with your designs.

Our theme for this one is Books / Literature 
so you can choose a title of book as inspiration or pictures of books; 
basically play however the theme takes you - I can't wait to see what you do!

This card didn't end up anything like I intended as I was going to use a 
naughty inlaid rainbow die ... I felt sure there must be a book about rainbows
so having done a little research I found 'The Rainbow' by DH Lawrence.
Once I'd got that in my head and the fact that I love rainbow colours I couldn't 
let it go! After numerous non-starters this is what I ended up with!

My Favourite Things: Concentric Circle Grid stencil
Clearly Besotted: Bookworm stamp set
Distress Inks and Doodlebug Sprinkles

It's Clean and Simple over at Addicted to Stamps and More
so I'm heading over there with this one!

Next up I couldn't resist this cute little digi from Digistamp Boutique
which I've had for ages. It's coloured with Promarkers and I've
added a vertical sentiment from the same CBS set used in the first card.

As always there's loads more creative fun by my fellow teamies
over on the Less is More blog HERE 

As always thanks for calling by and I hope you have
a fun and crafty weekend!



  1. These are fab! I love the bright colours and clean lines in both of them. The first card's sentiment is such a testament to the power of reading, and what a fabulous rainbow! I agree 100% with your second card and have stayed up way past my bedtime on many occasions with a book that can't be put down! Cute image and great colouring too! Have a lovely weekend x

  2. 2 terrific cards. Love the poop of colour in them.

  3. Have to say that rainbow colour wheel is absolutely awesome Sarah! Thank goodness you stuck with that rainbow idea. The blending is superb. Hee, Hee! I'm just like Esther, staying up past bedtime to finish a book... in fact I still do frequently. Love that cute image and your colouring is beautiful. Have a great crafty weekend.

  4. Two wonderful cards Sarah, love how you used the stencil for the rsinbow design. Have to try it I love rainbows toooooo. Looks so pretty.

  5. Awesome rainbow circle Sarah! Two really good cards - but the rainbow one I ADORE! x

  6. Bright and bold CAS cards here, Sarah, which have made me smile this morning! Love the rainbow on your first card and the sentiment on the second....although I more often end up with a book on my face when I try and read in bed these days :)

  7. Both these are fabulous! Your rainbow card is mega cool and your second one is soooooo sweet! Books are such an important thing, I love reading! xxx

  8. Sweet your gorgeous rainbow!

  9. These are so much fun Sarah a great take on the theme.
    So pleased you linked up to ATSM. :)

  10. Love this little guy reading his books. So cute and perfect coloring!

  11. You know I love these, your rainbow is perfectly blended and your colouring on the second card is fabulous....and you think you can't colour! I really must try harder with digis, there's so many great ones out there! xx

  12. Two lovely cards Sarah. The colouring and blending is perfect on both but particularly on the little boy reading.
