Lucky Dip at Less is More

This month we are fortunate enough to have 5 Saturdays, which means that at "Less is More" we have an extra challenge plus a Guest Designer.
For our Lucky Dip challenge this month we have chosen to use the blog header as the inspiration for the card creations.Here it is!
"Less is More"
We are really lucky to have have Kim as our Guest Designer this month and her cards have been an inspiration to us all  from the get go.
I have done a couple of cards, one as a direct case of the header and the other using the music and the flourishes, plus the general colour as the basis for my card.
Details of what I used on this are on the LIM blog!

This is one of my usual emboss resist  and inking cards. It's a little more removed from the original than the first card, but I hope you can see the influence of our header in it!
Do join us over at "Less is More"... what can you come up with?

  7. Just taking a break from my visitors - arn't I naughty - well they are all watchng cycling on the TV so won't miss me for a minute!! I especially like your second card and the way it morphs from the music score to a flutter of butterflies.
