Less is More week 61 Lucky Dip

Another gorgeous day here today and perfect for the colour choice for the LIM challenge.
As it's the fifth week of the month we have a Lucky Dip and it is a Picture Inspiration using this beautiful colour combo:

I caught a little bit of the Spellbinder show with Sue Wilson this morning and was inspired by one of her creations. Here is my take on it, what do you think?                

A5 base card with rounded corners and a doily topper cut from my Silhouette. I used SU Pink Pirouette to sponge the edges and to stamp a frame. The sentiment is from my xyron digital runner. I punched out 10 branches from the SU bird and branch punch and laced them through the beaded edge of the doily. The flowers are from an xcut punch with a pink pearl in the centre. A pink heart gem finishes it off.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully leave a comment so I can visit you:)

What a great idea Val - the wreath is so pretty and I love the way you've used the branches from the Bird and Branch punch (one of my all-time favourite punches), and the little pearls bring the flowers to life.

I have recorded several of Sue's shows this week, so I have those to look forward to - what she can do with Nesties is amazing!
Have a happy week - Sylvia x
