Less is More... and Another Sketch Challenge!

Thursday, June 7, 2012

The Less is More challenge this week is Red, White and Blue. As an Air Force wife, red, white and blue just screams the United States of America, our military, and patriotism to me!  I knew I had to make time to play along.

I also wanted to share a new challenge I found.  While commenting on a blog posts this morning, I discovered a new sketch challenge, retro sketches (where every sketch is a blast from our past...).  Many of the sketches have a clean and simple feel to them and their blog is adorable!  If you enjoy sketch challenges, you'll have to check them out (disclaimer - this is not a paid advertisement)!


And here's my card: red, white, and blue with lots of white space for the gals at Less is More.


I just love to make those shabby chic ribbon flowers...

Supplies:
Stamps: Retired (Sorry, I really need to stop using this stamp ) A Muse
Ink: Memento Nautical Blue (New 2012 color)
Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White (card base), Canvas Corp Designer Paper, Bazzill
Accessories: Handmade Ribbon Flower, Reflections Brad (Flower Center), Sizzlet Die (Leaf)
