A card today for the current Less is More challenge and ColourQ. What a color combo this week from ColourQ... Concord Grape, Kiwi Kiss, Bermuda Bay, Bashful Blue plus white. I was a bit stumped as to how I was going to put all those colors together and make the card look nice, but once I took a look at the current Less is More challenge an idea started to form. Chrissie & Mandi provided a lovely sketch for us to use and the idea to make it a DL card. I don't know what "DL" stands for, but when I saw the sketch I realized it obviously has something to do with making a long card!
As a rule I don't make long cards because I don't like how mine look when I try to take a photo of them (think leaning tower of Piza!). So, I decided to make a little bit longer card. My card is 6 x 3 3/4 instead of a standard A2 size. I colored a white paper flower from Irene's Garden with a Copic marker (V09) to get the purple color I wanted. The lower half of the card was stamped with Hero Art's Classic Fabric Design using Kiwi Kiss ink. I don't have Bermuda Bay except for one sheet of cardstock, so I subbed in PaperTrey Ink's Hawaiian Shores double stitched ribbon... a pretty close match. Silly me... I had attached the main panel to the cardbase when I realized I didn't have a sentiment on the card. Thankfully I was able to stamp the "hello" and not have it come out looking strange!
Thanks for taking a peek.... and thank you to all the lovely ladies who participate in the Less is More challenges for the wonderful comments! You are all the best!!
