Less is More & CASology

I was determined to make a card last night so I played along with my favorite challenge, Less is More.  The challenge, ending today, was to use tearing.  Eek! I was determined to give it a try.  I paired it with the cue word from CASology: green.

I tore a piece of PTI rustic white cardstock and stamped it with SU French foliage.  I added it to a rustic white card base and added some button, twine, and a sentiment.  I had no idea what I was going to do, and I am pleasantly surprised by how this turned out.



While I'm at it, here is a card I made a week or so ago using colors from CR84FN 60: blue, purple, and green.  Obviously missed that one by a mile!  I also used the sketch from the Hero Arts August challenge.


And a card made for Retrosketches 24.  Missed that one, too, but I still had fun. :)

Many apologies for the tardiness of my visit this week, a cruise to Norway intervened somewhat!
Thanks for your lovely LIM submission, I love those leaves.

Oh, those leaves are perfect! I love the twine & button, they add the perfect balance with the sentiment. Love the colours on the second two - the button arrangement with the bikes is really cool, and love those coffee cups!

Three great cards, Ann. The twine is the perfect embellishment for the nature card (which looks great torn). I like the bike card with the buttons, and I love the offset circle on the coffee cups card, and the colour scheme.
