Two Roads....

Hey there!!  Happy Sunday... I'm here with my card for this week's Less is More challenge.  Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us this week to use a "recipe":  find three previous Less is More challenges and combine then on your card.  



As I pondered the extensive list of past LIM challenges I knew that whatever three challenges I chose, they must work with the quote I wanted to use.   Last week Our Daily Bread Designs released its 4th Anniversary collection of scripture, quotes and sentiments.  As a member fo the ODBD challenge team I got the opportunity to contribute to this collection.  My contribution was the beautiful quote from Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken", which can be found in Quote Collection 1.  I absolutely love the way Kelley, the owner of ODBD, designed the stamp and the font that she used.    For my card I wanted to just let the quote take center stage and shine.  So, the three LIM challenges I chose are:  Week 15 - embossing; Week 49 - predominately purple and Week  55 - die cuts.   The image was stamped on white cardstock using dark purple ink and die cut using a Spellbinders plain rectangle die.  The largest die from the same set (I think large plain rectangles) was then used to emboss a frame on to the front of the purple card base.  I chose to use a purple card base because I felt it would allow the sentiment to stand out even more than on a white card base.  So... instead of lots of white space, I have lots of purple space...hee!!  The sentiment panel was then adhered using foam dimensionals.   Super clean and super simple!!

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Royal Velvet; Ink:  Close to My Heart Pansy Purple; Stamps:  ODBD; Dies:  Spellbinders
