Less is More week 119-one layer!

Hi everyone from a wet and windy London town! We had a lovely couple of days with Charlie and had him all to ourselves for the day yesterday, great fun all round:) He is so responsive now and understands everything! I got my first kiss too:)
Anyway back to crafty matters and this weeks challenge over at Less is More is as follows:

This week it's everyone's favourite.. One Layer Cards and this week we would like you to use a
Coloured Card Blank
Yes that's right, none of your boring, white, ivory, black or kraft card blanks we want to see you add some colour.
I very rarely use coloured card , except maybe for Xmas cards, so I don't have much to choose from but I found this lilac card and here's what I came up with:

The stamp is from an old oriental Papermania set and is stamped and embossed in black. The symbol means Love. I added white highlights with a gel pen and a frame using a black pen to create dots.

I had two baby cards to make last week for my friend who has a new baby grandaughter who had a bit of a shaky start but is home now and doing well, her name is Primrose:)

I stamped some flowers onto card and cut out a bodice and pleated another piece for the skirt. I added some ribbon and made a little hanger.

This one is using a cuttlebug EF and a ribbon with a rolled flower.

Thanks for visiting and hopefully leaving a comment:)

The white highlights look a lovely aqua colour on the photo.... really pretty colour combo Val. I adore the little dress you made, such a pretty name for a baby... brings to mind The Darling Buds of May :0)

These are fab Val, I love the delicate coloured cardstock of the first card.
The little dress is really pretty... maybe you should have done it in yellow... Primrose... what a pretty name!
Thanks so much

Lovely cards Val especially the LiM one with that moody coloured card base and that bold image. It sounds as if you're really enjoying your time with your Charlie and good to hear that little Primrose is doing well too. Vicky x
