LIM : Card No 5

Woohoo!  Number 5 for the Less is More challenge….done!  And who’d have thunk this would have been the hardest one for me!Wedding Card

I’m not entirely sure I’ve done this justice…but I have agonised over what to do for this square, and in the end I’ve just gone simple!  I love this stamp from Fun and Fast Notes and it’s perfect as we head into wedding season *claps hands excitedly*.  I have used this colour combo before…it’s Baja Breeze and Cherry Cobbler.   I’ve coloured it in using my water brush and inks…which works very well….just hope you can’t see the inky finger prints!! LOL!

Post Entry Note: So after the comments on my card, I just had to try again! I do know what Mandi means and I wasn’t entirely happy with the the card above so here’s card no5, take 2  (I’m not obsessed you understand!!):

Wedding Card (2)

I’ve kept the same colour scheme, but this time I have stamped the image 3 times and decoupaged it.  I’ve stood the cakes on a ribbon strip and added a bow to one side. 




CongratulationsHere’s a close-up of the image.








So that’s definitely it!  Here’s a recap of my other 4 cards:

I’ve really enjoyed this challenge and will carry on with this fantastic CAS idea of Picking a Square.  Chrissie, Mandi…it’s been absolutely fab!!  And I’ve loved looking at all the other entries!  They’ve all been sooo great.  And now I’m off to comment on the latest ones Smile.

Thanks for reading



  1. Fab set of cards, you're really on a roll! Like them all, the cakes are a lovely image and I love your colouring.

  2. Well I think I agree, this is your 'simplest' option. You were extremely creative wiht the other entries. A square in the middle is easiest I guess, but, not necessairly, it still ahs to work!
    We never meant everyone to choose a square and then place a square in the corner, your other 4 were interpreted spot on.
    Not sure if I've made myself clear! sorry
    Well done, you've done a sterling job this week
    thank you!
