Sunset colours for LIM #227

Hi there!

Long time no challenges!

So happy to join Less is more for their challenge to use sunset colours. I know the idea was not necessarily to create a card featuring a sunset, but somehow this card wanted to be a sunset card ;)

My eldest niece moved to her own (and first) apartment last week, and I wanted to create something especially for her to celebrate the occasion.

A close up :

I have cut all the elements with my Silhouette.
I started with the sun, and applied the offset function 3 times for the different layers. I added the little house and my own sentiment from a previous card. I will share it again if you want to use it.
(English & Afrikaans version)

Thanks for visiting me today!

LOVE this card!! You are so clever and I keep remembering to take out my silhouette OR my Cricut Explore (that I've never used!).

Leuk om weer een kaart voor een andere challenge van jou hand te zien! En als steeds zijn de combinaties die jij met de silhouette maakt mooi grafisch en heel origineel; ook deze weer! Fijne week verder, Gerrina

Wat 'n pragtige son met sulke fantastiese en briljant gekiesde kleure, vrou - wie sou nou ooit kon raai dat daai kleure so goed kan saamwerk!!!! ...en daai huisie is net te skattig!!! Pragtig geplaas so reg onder op die rand van die kaartjie - stewig geanker!!! Ek hou van die sentiment en waar jy dit geplaas het en al die white space aan die bokant verleen net soveel meer trefkrag nog aan die pragtige onderkant!!!! Baie mooi!!!!
