I also used Nestie Circles Memory Box tree die, Cuttlebug dots and Liquid Pearls.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

A card made while I had a play the other night. This one didn't take long, funny how when you get an idea you can make it in jig time. 




I used a Memory Box leaf die, a free embossing sentiments folder, Cuttlebug Dots folder & Spellbinders small poinsettia die. 
Not a lot to it really.

Top Tip Tuesday


Fingers crossed that this scheduled post will appear as I am on holiday. 
This fortnight on Top Tip Tuesday we have a challenge of Monochrome.
I have chosen to use blue tones with one of our sponsor's image Boy Snowboarder by Kenny K.




I have coloured the image with Promarkers and layered onto Paper Mania papers. Instead of snowflakes I have used a Memory Box leaf to give the illusion of ice. A little Glossy Accents on the board and goggles and a  touch of glitter. My words are stamps I bought many years ago and fit the  theme well. 

When you read this I am hoping to be half way up a mountain in Austria enjoying the view.

I have not played along with the Less Is More challenge for quite some time. So I had a little play. One layer cards can be a bit daunting. I masked a section for the sentiment, added a little chalk colour to the stamped image and drew some lines around the image to frame the card. A few drops of liquid pearls to add a bit of interest.



The stamp I used was a freebie from Cardmaking and Papercrafts mag.
