Sketch and Spring



These are Challenges in every sense of the word. 

30 minutes deciding which stamp to use, 10 minutes to make it and at least 30 minutes photographing it.  It is a very cold, dull day today and we just could not get the light right, so after trying several different rooms, angles - card and husband - and a couple of arguments thrown in for good measure it ended up with me holding a piece of tin foil on the right hand side of it to reflect the bit of light on the left hand side and Voila - we finally managed to get a photo.  I loving every minute of it.

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge Number 65 and CAS-ual Friday Challenge CFC50.

The image is from Inkadinkado Set - Utopiary embossed with WOW Gold embossing powder and the sentiment from Stampin' Up Pocket Silhouettes set.  I also used Distress Inks - Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw and Brused Corduroy mounted on Kraft Card.

Thanks for looking.
