Less.... Is More

Afternoon all, well last week has knocked me sideways! Im thinking that i was definitely not born for early mornings! But its part of having the kids so I best just get on with it I suppose! Its been a strange weekend! We went to a party as a family yesterday and it was lovely - other than while Mark was chasing one child - I was chasing the other!

well I decided to try another clean and simple card, I thought at first it was going to be easier 2nd time round, but I wanted to try something different! I wanted less on it, but it looked blank... its taken me 2 days of staring at her to realise what I needed to do! 


I used the lovely Sugar Nellie image Bad Hare Day available at Funky kits.  I coloured her using copic pens! Ahhh they are lush to colour with, this was my 1st attempt with them and so I was pretty shocked at how well she came out! To say half of it was done in the dark! 


I used my cuttlebug embossing folder down the side of the card just to add something as she could look so plain otherwise! 


Im sorry for how blurry the photo is but i just wanted to take a close up of her! her cheeks look really dark there but they don't look like that on the card! 

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Sugar Nellie Facebook Challenge - Less in More!
Crafty Ann's -Outside of comfort zone - (i like pretty papers too much!)

This is really lovely Trina, I love the embossing and ribbon - they are just enough to finish the card without taking away from the lovely image. Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us at Crafty Ann's
