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.
