Simple Pansy

This is my card for this weeks Less is More Challenge, I'm doing well, that's six weeks in a row that I have managed a card.  This week's challenge is a theme and it is FLOWERS.


I have used a fabulous coloured image from Pink Gem Designs called Pansy.  I printed my image on to some white card stock and then embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, I used a diffuser to create the smooth panel for my image, I love digi stamps because you can re-size them to fit your design.  The sentiment comes with the image and I have just added a layer of pink card stock.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Challenge Week 172 - Flowers
CASology Week 96 - Flower
One Stitch at at Time Challenge 213 - Keep it Simple
Card Mania Challenge 47 - CAS

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated..

Hi Pauline what a gorgeous card. Love that image you have coloured it so delicately. I have never heard of a diffuser (apart from hairdryers) but what a brilliant effect! Susan x

Beautiful card Pauline, love the simplicity of it.
Love the embossing folder and how you have diffused it to make it flat for the flower.

Love & Hugs

Hi Pauline,

Thank you for your kind comments concerning my House Mouse post, I would love to enter for the House-Mouse Monday Challenge but it says its got to be anything to do with water and being as I have none of that I don't think I would qualify. Thanks anyway.

Love & hugs

I find that CAS cards are quick to do, but only after spending hours on an idea for design! This style is so elegant, and it's the type of design that is perfect for a mass production of thank you cards...
