One Layer Card - Build-able Bouquet

Hello and I am back with a card which I am entering into this week's Less is More Challenge which is:-
Yikes....the dreaded one layer card again so no room for mistakes on this one. 
Less is More Challenge #328 Spots and Stripes using MFT Build-able Bouquet
I have used MFT Build-able Bouquet which I haven't used for a while.  I used my Misti to stamp several of the flowers and then coloured them using Copic markers.  No shading - just simple colouring.  I actually think the small red flowers look a bit like a strawberry!
I then added some dots with a white gel pen and then added the sentiment which is by Lawn Fawn 'Happy Happy Happy'.

Do have a hop on over to the Less is More blog to see the amazing cards that the Design Team have come up with this week.
On another note - my surprise anniversary break was absolutely lovely.  My husbean had booked us into a chateau in Anglesey near Beau Maris.  It was the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in and so quirky and unusual.  It was built in the style of a French chateau in beautiful grounds which overlooked the Menai Straits.

The weather was fantastic and the journey to North Wales was stunning.  We drove through Llanberis Pass, viewing Snowdon as we went.  We took a trip out to Puffin Island for some birdwatching and just generally chilled, ate and drank.  I always thought puffins were about the size of penguins but they aren't - they are much smaller.  And the anniversary card I gave my husband which used the seagulls from MFT Seaside Gulls (which you can see HERE)turned out to be very apt considering our location.

Toodles for now,



  1. Wow, Wendy, what a great anniversary present!

  6. What a FABULOUS card, love the flower stamp and how you have coloured them and the added spots make them stand out. Really glad to hear your trip went well, North Wales is stunning, and to do the boat trip too, AND for the card to be perfect, sounds ALL good to me.
