Less Is More

The Less Is More Challenge is a new one to me.  It is week 22, and it is a colour challenge called "Shades of Blue".


I used a white base card, printed out 3 assorted blue patterned digital papers from Piggy Scrap Design, cut pieces to size and began assembling.  I added 3 shell punches from my jumbo Paper Shaper punch.  My sentiment is from Create with TLC, and was punched out with an EK Success punch.  I inked the edges with VersaMagic ink in Night Sky.  That is it, short and sweet.  I am sure not use to this CAS look, but maybe that is what I need to get me kick started. 

Hope everyone is staying cool.  It is a real stinker here!  Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

Cool card and we're having nice cool weather too! Ate lunch out on the veranda with a nice breeze blowing. Great digital papers and punched shells -- you do a great job with whatever style you try!

We do require more white space ideally, for our challenge
Great card though
Thank you
