Less is More: Sketch Take 1

Firstly, I'd like to apologize ahead of time.  I shall be MIA for a bit as I've got a family wedding to attend and so I will be leaving my craft area (MINI PANIC ATTACK) and my sweet puppy (GIANT PANIC ATTACK) who has  never been away from us since we got her 2 years ago and be gone for a while.  I'm trying to be happy about it, I'll get to see family I haven't seen in years, but I will so miss all of you and your fabulous creations!  I've already had to spend less time than I'd like with you all, as I've been trying to step it down a bit so it's not huge withdraw when it happens.  So, please know that I am not purposefully ignoring any of you and will try to get back into the swing of things...

Secondly, I've made two cards with this week's Less is More sketch, but I'm partial to one of them and so am saving it for it's very own post! ;)  This post is to showcase the first card that I made with this sketch.

Here's the card~


For these fabulous challenges~

(I've used floral, dry embossing, favorite color--I ADORE yellow tulips!)

I was able to use a new wood grain dry embossing folder from Crop Stop winnings. :)  I also used a stamp set that I purchased a few months ago and still had yet to use, so I also got that out.  Stamp, emboss, add, sparkle, and, voila! ;)

I have another bunch of cards made with my Fiskars Fresh Fruits set as well, but those will have to wait a bit.  I'm short on time and have to share something with you when I'm away from home1 ;)  Happy stamping--come back soon for my other LIM card!!!

Oh no, so much to panic about... but at least you will savour it all the more when you return. I hope you have a fantastic time at the wedding. I really like the woodgrain effect with the stamping on your card.

Beautiful card! I love the subtle colours on this one. The yellow flowers and the butterfly really stand out against the soft backgraound colours.
