Less Is More Challenge no. 166, "Color"

Good evening stampers...another lovely spring-style day in sunny Arizona. If it keeps us, we're gonna be spoiled. I just love it, although I was at the movies for the late afternoon. Prior to that, my family enjoyed a day at a local festival.

So, what did we see...Russell Crowe in Noah. From a Christian point of view, it was awful...filled with inaccuracies. In my opinion, the comment literary license, which the term being thrown about, is far too tame a description. Really, transformer rocks helping to defend the ark and the family! UGH! Don't waste your money or your time.

OK, off my critique stool and onto my card. Less Is More is challenging us for the 166th time. WoW! Time flies when you're having fun.  Here's my entry. I've used the wonderfully thick 110 lb. white card stock by Recollections...a great bargain at Michaels, and a die from Impression Obsession, DIE066-C. There's no name on it. All of the little leaves are connected by thin wire, yet when they are die-cut, they turn-out separated. So I used the negative space and backed that up with SU's turquoise cs dry embossed with one of the first SU embossing folders called 'textured impressions'. With all the folders I own, I still enjoy using this one. The daisy (which I stacked 3 of) is a die-cut from Quik-Kutz.  The center is blue Ranger's Liquid Pearls. The butterfly is a Cheery Lyn die-cut with a tiny bit of more Liquid Pearls in bisque. And the sentiment is brand new from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die D-Lites Sentiments One.  There's no dot for the letter "i", so I used a blue sparkly Gelly Roll Sakura pen to make one. You're gonna see this set lots from me.

Why not head on over to LIM and join in or just browse. You'll get a true dose of CAS from their challenges. Turquoise is such a fun color to play with. I'll have one more entry to upload there tomorrow.

Have a blessed week.
