With love x 2 !

Hi there

I combined two challenges to make a card... and when I finished the first one, I was curious to see how it will look in different colors... and that's why I once again have 2 same but different cards to show you today!

The 2 challenges I am referring to are:

Less is more : Color challenge ~ use 3 adjacent colors on the color wheel.

300 weeks of inspiration : Kara's challenge to case any of the cards she pinned to her Friday Inspiration File on Pinterest.

Before I share my cards...

I want to thank Kara for sourcing all this wonderful cards every week for our inspiration! Also a BIG thank you for the honor of being included in your inspiration file a couple of times!


Congratulations to LIM on the big occasion of celebrating their 6th birthday! Another source of constant inspiration, and a challenge I do my best to join every week :)

On to my card(s) :

First the pink/fuschia/purple version:

... and the yellow/orange/red version:

The flower is a Hero Arts design from the Silhouette online store : Design ID #24463

I used it as a digital stamp  : Black fill option, print/cut. and then colored it with my Promarkers in the colors mentioned above.
The gold and silver strips are washi tape, and the flower centers good old fashioned (messy) glitter!

So... the card I used as my inspiration, is by Yoonsun Hur from week #297.

I fell in love with that card the moment I saw it and was waiting for the opportunity to put my own spin on it!

I decided to focus on one single graphic flower, using 3 different colors for each flower.


Thanks for looking!

They are both gorgeous Hannelie. But with two of my favourite colours (orange and yellow) in the second one I'm definitely drawn to that one. Love how you had some fun with some real glitter!

Both are totally stunning Hannelie! I love the vibrant pop of colours against the white background, and the glitter strips at the edge set off the design to perfection. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

I love both of these beautiful cards, Hannilie. The bright colors and the strip of glimmer paper down the side make them so pretty.

"Love" the vibrant colors, sparkle & shine and your awesome design! It's amazing how changing the color combo totally changes the 'feel' of the card!

You were on a roll this week Hannelie with these two terrific makes. Loving the graphic nature of that flower image and you've really showcased it with the two colourways. Very envious of your washi! It's gorgeous, opulent and so full of 'bling'. Incredible layout too. Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
