Less is More Challenge - week 53

This week the challenge at the Less is More Challenge Blog is a colour one.
AQUA
I didn't think I had anything in this colour but it's amazing what you can find when you start looking!
I saw a lovely card here (great blog to visit) and this is my version of it. I'm thinking that there may be too many layers/embellishments to be a 'less is more' card but it's done now. It's a snowy day here in the Scottish Borders so snowflakes seemed a good starting point.
The snowflakes are made using a Spellbinders die (with various brads in the centres from who knows where!) and the embossing folder is from Stampin' Up. The greeting is Anna Griffin's - had to stamp in black as I didn't have any aqua ink and my silver is all dried up.
Enjoy the snow!

Today (10th Feb 2012) I decided to do another version of this card in red.
Here it is:
Not sure which I prefer but perhaps the aqua one which is a bit of a surprise for me as I love red, especially for Christmas cards!

  1. You do have a few layers, but the main design is CAS and is very pretty, so that's fine with me!
