Less Is More week 72



Hi everyone, here is my card for week 72 of the Less Is More challenge, and the theme this week is to use something shiny. I found its quite difficult to photograph a card in a way that shows the shine!

I have used a foil edged diecut shape and stamped the poppies and the message in black Memento, coloured the flowers and edged the card using Promarkers.

The poppy stamps are by Hobby Art, diecut and message stamp by Dawn Bibby Designs.

This is really pretty Sue, I do agree about the difficulty of taking a decent pic of shiny cards!
This looks great!
Thanks so much

I love the poppy stamp Sue & such a lovely shaped card as well. I agree with Chrissie, it's not easy to get the shine to show up on a pic.

So fun being a shaped card -- I love mirror paper, and it is very difficult to photograph~

You should try scanning mirror card: it's a total hoot! Your card is beautiful. I really like the composition and teh shape of the card.

cheers, rachel #51 (on the linky thing)

Thank you for your nice comments, everyone. xx

I usually photograph my cards in the kitchen because it has good light but it wasn't working so I went out into the garden! :-O
