Lucky Dip Week at Less is More

I made a few cards for this week's challenge at "Less is More"
It's the first time that we've used a picture for inspiration and the colours are just lovely. Do take a look at the blog for the image. 
We also have a guest designer this week, Jenny from Crafting in the country
This card uses my new Memory box dies, it's the basic tulip die plus the build a blossom tulip die which I added over the top. This one is covered with Glossy Accents. The frame stamp was also from amongst my bargains at the NEC. I got 12 stamps for £10 mainly Rubber Stampede... I was really thrilled with them.
An inky one next... I just love playing about with ink dusting and over-stamping! 

More tulips!

...and a few more!

... and finally a lovely clover from Blockhead Stamps.
We really hope you'll join us for this different challenge for us... but remember... keep it Clean and Simple!
