Less is More 70 and MIM 69

Just squeaking in on the last day with my entry for Less is More.  In honor of Jubilee Weekend, it's a color challenge to use red, white, and blue.  I never think of flowers for a red and blue color combo, so I decided to challenge myself to try something different for me.  I used flowers from PTI floral frenzy with buttons for the centers, and I think they're kind of fun.



My layout is based on one of the PTI sketches this week at Capture the Moment.  I liked the simplicity of this one (big surprise!).  I did change the sentiment a bit after much playing around.  The sentiment strip is popped up on dimensionals and scored on the top and bottom.  One of the flowers is also popped up for a little dimension.

Fresh and crisp is just too perfect a description! Red, white & blue is always classic - love that sentiment :)

Great use of these colours in such a pretty card! I find this such a difficult combo that I tend to just avoid it... maybe next time I'll give it a try.

Brilliant as always Ann! Love how you've used the buttons.
