Less is More 101 and C4C 167


The Less is More challenge was to use black and white and a splash of color. The stamps are from Flourishes, Stampin' Up, and Verve. The rose was stamped on red and white gingham paper and then the shadows were shaded with a red copic marker. I also am working to keep a new year's resolution to use up scraps from my scrap pile. That is the same resolution for my stamproom that I had last year, and I did a good job, it's only that I have 5 years of scraps to use up!!LOL I also am using this card for the C4C challenge #167 to use ribbon and bows.
