Less is More - Week 57 - Colour

Hello everyone.  This week's colour challenge over at Less is More is 

This could be anything from off white to black with any shade of beige, brown or grey in between.

For this I decided to use some kraft card from Anna-Marie Designs and made up a 6"x6" card blank.  I used a Versamark inkpad to stamp butterflies from my Lost Coast Designs Butterflies Set 8.00.  I then cut out four borders using my Memory Box Tessatina Border die which is so delicate (and if anyone can come up with a use for all the "waste" which is too pretty to throw away I would love it hear from you!!!)  I added a touch of glue to each corner and made up a box frame which I then put on the card.  I stamped the largest butterfly in Versamark and embossed with copper e/p.  The frame and sentiment is from Stampin Up Vintage Labels set, again stamped and embossed with the copper e/p and cut out using the SU scalloped frame punch.  I then added some copper gems.

Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Beautiful card Karen and I very nearly missed it! For some reason you aren't showing up on my side bar although you are on my reading list. Don't know why!

  4. This is gorgeous and now I'm even more hankering after memory Nox dies - often the 'waste' is too good to throw away even if we can't decide what to do with it!!

  5. Such a pretty card :) Viv xx

  6. Gorgeous card Karen, I didnt think we could use white this week, yours is just great.
