Another Challenge ..

It seems that this week is Challenge Week for me - both in my creativity and my non-creative life.  I have been taken with a few challenges this week, as well as the challenge of returning to work after holidays, and returning to diet after two weeks of my mum's cooking!!! 









The card challenges that I worked on for this card come from Less Is More and Stamping 411.  I don't often join in the less is more, because I have a habit of filling up the card and not leaving enough blank space, but the 411 sketch challenge gave me a layout that had a fair bit of space.

The Less Is More challenge was to add something fruity, because I don't have any fruity stamps, I immediately thought of this strawberry made from the Heart Embosslit Die, the 5-petal flower, 2-step bird and boho blossoms punches.  The idea came from Denise Willerton who was a featured artist on Stamping 411, there is a link to the tutorial on that site.  I chose Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Aways Artichoke as the colours on the card.  The centres of the three flowers are little brads, which give some dimension to them.

Happy Stamping
