Finally.....Less is More!

Evening all!

I have not taken part in a Less is More challenge for far too long! Shame on me! Sorry Chrisse & Mandi! But after I saw this weeks sketch challenge I knew I wanted to take part as I love this Lay out! It's my Brother in Law's birthday today as well, so it was a perfect opportunity to make a card for him and here it is....

The arty farty shot that shows you the dimension of some of the footballs....

and of course the infamous inside shot (sorry its a little blurred, but you get the idea!)...


CS: SU Night of Navy and Whisper White

Paper: Daffodil delight from the brights stack

Stamps: SU Cheer and Wishes (Retired), Football stamp from stash (although a similar one is available from SU)

Tools: SU Scalloped border and Circle punches, Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and Night of Navy ink pad

Misc: Dimensionals

Some of you may recognise that I have made similar cards to this before with the same football image and same colour ways. There is a simple explanation for this. All the men in my family love football and apart from my dad they all support Leeds United. Blue, Yellow and white are the LUFC colours!

Well thanks for stopping by. I am hoping to get more in the swing of things again with my crafting, so hopefully I will be entering some more LIM challenges again soon!!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
