Penguin with love

My Penguin with Love card was again made for the Less is More challenge, I did this card in PSP and faded the colours of the 3 squares, the colours were taken from the colours in the penguin. The sentiment was computer generated using Showcard Gothic font, and I picked up the colour to match the top square.

Celtic squares

Less is More week 4, and this weeks challenge is to use 3 squares. I used a stamp from a set I dont often use called Celtic, using black gloss card stock embossed my 3 squares with gold embossing powder and then layered it onto gold mirror card, and then onto a strip of the black gloss card before placing onto my white card stock. My sentiment was computer generated using Park Avenue BT font.

Spring flowers

This weeks challenge at Less is More is 'Spring' so I thought it had to be spring flowers, and so I chose this digi of tulips, coloured them and cut them out with my nestabilities and mounted them on red card scalloped nestabilities, then the fun began.... I have had my first try at circular text, which I did in Microsoft Publisher using the Papyrus font, it took a bit of playing to get the circle the correct size, but luckily the first time I printed it it was perfect.

Single layer flower

The challenge at Less is More this week had to be a single layer with one flower or a tree, eventually came up with this card, the flower is a digi, and I painted it with LuminArte Plum Blossom and Moss Green, this is one if my first painted cards! the text was computer generated and the border I drew using Microsoft Publisher.

I am using my lovely new Martha Stewart butterfly punch for this card, the sentitment was computer generated, I made this for the new 'Less is more' challenge, but think I might have put a bit too much on the card, I will try better next time :) also entering it for 2 other challenges:
Less is More - pink black and white
CCEE stampers - punched pieces
Ooh-la-la-creation - 3 of a kind
