Less is More - Pastels

Over at Less is More this week its Pastels. For my card I have used a stamp byDarkroom doors from the set friendship flowers. I stamped it onto gloss card and embossed it with Mallow Flame cosmic shimmer embossing powder. I then coloured the background with Spun Sugar distress ink. I also stamped over the image with the same colour and a fancy font stamp. Cut it out with Spellbinders Die and added pearls. For the card I used a plain white card and used the same font stamp. I also coloured the ribbon with the Spun sugar distress ink.


  1. Your treatment of this card is very delicate, the stamps are gorgeous and the colour is lovely!
    Thanks for joining us and see you next week!

  4. Oh my goodness you have been making some wonderful cards whilst I have been AWOL

    So sorry to hear about your son's problems - hope everything works out well in the end.

    Please don't exhaust yourself, I know it's hard as a mother/grandmother - we are the 'glue' holding everything together aren't we. But you do need to be kind to yourself - or else there is a risk of you being totally exhausted.

    Thinking of you
