I'm Back...With a Less Is More Challenge entry!

Evening all...

Remember me! Yes I know it's been what seems like a lifetime since I last blogged, I've really missed you guys.  I have missed taking part in weekly challenges soooo much but I just haven't had the time in between work and wedding invites, there just hasn't been enough hours in the day.

But I wanted to share with you a card tonight which I'm entering into this weeks Less Is More Challenge. This week the challenge was to create something using a sketch.

I absolutely love this simplicity of this sketch - its so me!!

It just so happened to tie in with a Grandads Birthday - (I know I'm getting a bit keen on all these man cards!)

I chose Papertrey Ink's Garden Variety (I can't wait for my new Papertrey parcel to arrive this weekend :) I carefully inked the tools' handles in Classic Kraft and the metal parts in pale grey.  I seem to have a thing for rounded corners at the minute- they seem to finish a card of nicely - something different  from the norm!  I finished the card off with a Pinefeather button, good old button twine and a double banner- layered slightly off to show a flash of green - the sentiment was stamped from fillable frames number 4 using dark chocolate ink!

So what do you think? I would love to hear what you all think!

Thank you very much for taking time to read my ramblings!  I promise I won't leave it so long next time! :)

Take Care



  1. This is lovely, I love the choice of kraft card for a gardening theme!
    Thanks so much

  2. Nice card, Kate, this layout lends itself so well for a "guy card". And the polka dots peeking out behind the banner are a nice touch!

  3. This is beautiful - love the colours and those gardening tools are really cute. M x
