Less is More Challenge #314

Hello I am back with a card today for a challenge.  I haven't entered any challenges recently due to lack of time and also because it sometimes takes my ageing brain a while before I get an idea of what I can make!!
 
But Less is More are celebrating their 6th Birthday and this week's challenge is to use 3 adjacent colours on a colour wheel (see below) so I thought I would enter.
 
I chose to use orange, yellow and green. 
 
Less is More Challenge #314
 
I first cut a piece of card that was 4.25" x 5.5" and lightly drew a pencil line about 3/4" away from the edge.  I then stamped my flowers and leaves which are from a set by Happy Little Stampers called Doodled Flowers.
 
Once I had coloured them in, I fussy cut around them up to the pencil line so that they would hang over the edge of the card. 

Sympathy card made using Happy Little Stampers Doodled Flowers
 
I admit I'm not great at fussy cutting.  I do try turning my paper rather than the scissors and this does help a lot.  I think I just need to practice more!
 
I then ran the card front through my Big Shot to emboss some stitch lines using MFT Homespun Stitch Lines dies and also on the green card base.  I then adhered the white card using foam tape to the card base and added a sentiment which was heat embossed onto black card.  This again was from the Doodled Flowers stamps.
 
I then fussy cut out another flower and popped it up over the top flower using foam dimensionals and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple Green and White.  I added (can't help it) my usual white spots with a Signo Uni-ball pen.

  8. Wow! So many details to look at in your card Wendy. It is a sensational design and those citrus-y colours are so fresh looking. Superb fussy cutting and, oh my! am I envious of your gorgeous stitched die? Yes I am! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx

  9. This simply a beautiful card. The stitching details really pop with the rest of the design. I am not a fan of fussy cutting myself. But after seeing this card I may need to try again.
