LIM turns 2

It seems like forever since I've made a card, but it's only been a few weeks! :)

I couldn't miss this week's LIM challenge to use kraft and cream, as they are celebrating their second anniversary as a challenge blog.  I'm just squeaking in at the last hour. :)  Less is More was one of the first challenges (along with One-Layer Wednesdays) that I participated in, and it continues to be my favorite.

I've made three cards this week using Hero Arts dogwood.  This is a very large stamp so it was tricky to create cards with white space, but I had it in my mind that I wanted to use this stamp with a kraft-colored ink on cream cardstock, and I wasn't going to do anything else!

I've used my last sheets of PTI vintage cream cardstock on these cards, and am now left with just bits and pieces in my scrap box.  Ink is VersaMagic Sahara Sand and Wheat.

Thanks for looking.  Happy Birthday, LIM, and here's to many more!

So many different looks with the same stamp - I love that! I think my favourite just might be the first one with all the fussy cutting :)

Lovely soft colours and a great use of the same stamp. I love your CAS style and I am sticking around. :)
