Happy Birthday "Less is More"

This week we're celebrating the first birthday of the fab "Less is More Challenge".  This was the first challenge I ever entered and it really kickstarted my 'blogging' life and introduced me to so many great blogging friends - so thank you Chrissie and Mandi for all you hard work.

Now onto this week's challenge which is the colour "Aqua" ...

  



I was rummaging in the cupboards yesterday as my daughter wanted to do some felt sewing and I came across some turquoise wrapping paper - "that'll do nicely" thought I.  I embossed a La Blanche stamp with white EP and mounted it behind a Tim Holtz dress form aperture.  Sentiment is Hero Arts and the card is DL size.



The card on the left is taken with my camera but in real life the blue is really a turquoise colour - the photo below was taken with my phone - this shows a truer colour but not such a detailed image.












Thanks for coming to visit, hope you all have a great week - keep safe & warm!

Suze xx
