Less Is More challenge 19

The theme at Less is More this week is "In the Frame" and it is a One Layer week. So we needed to create a card with only one layer and a frame somewhere in the layout. I chose to create a branch using Tim Holtz Winter stamp(tree) stamped sideways. I then masked off the frame portion and coloured the branch with promarkers. I then stamped the leaves using Tim Holtz floral stamp and brown tones distress inks. I then masked outside the frame and coloured the sky, tree branch with Promarkers and stamped the leaves with Tim Holtz floral stamp and green distress inks. the happy birthday is stamped in blue to tie in the sky colour. The bird is stamped from Time Holtz bird branch small stamp and coloured with Promarker. The frame is hand drawn with black marker and some doodles.

I am honored that my card from the Week 17 Challenge at Less is More was showcased. You can see it here . These challenges are so much fun and also very relaxing as the tend to be minimalistic but challenging. Fancy a little break? Why not give LIM a try!

So how about all this rain today? I had hung out my wash this morning as it was sort of nice out and then it started and has not stopped since. Oh well I guess we need it. At least it gave me a chance to work on some upcoming projects that I needed to complete along with the LIM challenge.
On a another note, I really would like to thank all the people who have been visiting my blog and leaving such wonderful comments. It is so nice to read them all! So thank you for taking the time to leave me a kind word. I try to visit the blogs of those who leave me comments although it may take me a little bit to get there.

Well that's all I have for now. Maybe some more tomorrow if there is a bit of time. Thanks for stopping in and have a lovely day. Angela
