LIM : Sketch Week

I can’t believe I’ve agonised for so long over this week’s challenge on Less is More!  It’s a sketch….a simple, CAS sketch!  IMG_1536

I think I was lacking the inspiration this week…but then it’s been a very trying (and busy!) week for the family this week!!  We’ve had birthdays and parties galore.  So apologies if it seems a little lack lustre!  I’m sure Lady and Diva LIM throw these simple challenges at us to make us think!!  Maybe I’ll have better luck in the week :-).

My intention was to make a masculine birthday card, potentially for the older generation and I think this could work.  The image is from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the sentiment from Party this Way, both from Stampin’ Up!  I’ve stamped and matted them in Early Espresso and used a bit of twine to decorate….very simple!!  But I hope you like it!

I’m also entering this in the following challenges:

Allsorts {Clean and Simple}

Anything Goes {Anything Goes}



  1. This is quite beautiful Linda I love that image of the tree a superb card.

  2. This is lovely Linda, I think the added twine is a super touch. I think the sentiment looks a little far removed from the image and to my eye I think it may have looked a little happier slightly further away from the corner... what do you think?
    Whatever, it's a fab card!
    Thanks so much
