Less is More week 136-colour challenge

Afternoon everyone from a wet and muggy London! Firstly, apologies for my lack of commenting on your blogs, I have been having sneak peeks but we had a very busy weekend Charlie sitting and he likes to use my tablet! He was very good for us and wasn't at all put out when it was me who got up to him in the night and not Mummy and Daddy :)

Anyway back to this week's LIM Challenge which is a colour theme:

                  The colours for this challenge are Dark Green and Rust.

I used SU French Foliage stamp set and Adirondack Cabin Fever and SU Wild Wasabi inks

I punched out some oak leaves and the sentiment is an old SeeDee one.

This week I have been making a book card for my lovely friend and ex colleague, Jackie who is 50 today and we are going to her celebration this evening.
These do make such a special card and I enjoyed making it using colours and images that I know she will like, come and see:

This is the box decorated with punched flowers, liquid pearls and butterflies.

This is the card front decorated with dies and a few gems.

This is the inside using papers from my stash, punches and embellishments created in Craft Artist.

Thanks for visiting and any comments are much appreciated.

Well, you're right Val..... great minds think alike! Great card - love these autumnal colours although not quite appreciating the weather! Jackie is going to love her special card. Hope you have a great evening.

Two great projects - love the autumnal one and of course although box cards are a lot of work they are well worth it. I'm sure your friend will just love it.

Two beautiful pieces here. What a gorgeous keepsake - something which will be treasured forever - and French Foliage is one of my all-time favourites.

A lovely autumnal theme for your LIM card, Val. Love your leaves! The special card you made for your friend is a work of art and so beautiful. She will really appreciate all the TLC you put into creating it just for her, and I'm sure it will be treasured. Hope you enjoyed a lovely evening x
