Less is more #205

Hi there!

Everything is getting back to normal again after the festive season.

Our 2 daughters departed within 15 minutes from each other this morning. They are on their way back to their respective universities in Neuchatel and Eindhoven.

I am trying to keep my head and hands busy to ease the longing. No better challenge to turn to than  Less is more  where there is a color challenge this week.

I love the colors provided as inspiration :


I picked black, silver and magenta for my card and have 2 versions to show :

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Have a great week!

Joe, daai silwer en pienk is net eenvoudig asemrowend mooi so saam met die wit en swart, vrou!!!! Wat 'n stunning blom met soveel pragtige dimensie!!! Ek hou van die swart raam om die kaartjie wat die blom net nog meer lewe gee - dis altyd vir my ongelooflik wat 'n verskil so 'n raam aan 'n CAS kaartjie kan maak!!! Jou sentiment is lieflik en ek's mal oor die pienk enamel dots onderaan die blomme. Ek kan nie regtig besluit watter een van die twee kaartjies vir my die mooiste is nie - as ek moet kies dink ek die enkele blom kry my stem, maar hoe meer ek kyk hoe minder kan ek besluit!!!! Dit is regtig alweer twee pragstukke, vrou, soos net jy dit kan doen!!

Both your cards are beautiful, but I think I really love the double flower card the most.
