Less Is More week 122 and The Play Date Cafe #184

Hello, lovely crafters and bloggers.

This week's Less Is More challenge is a colour challenge - use the colour of your front door and here is my card. My front door is white with a Georgian panel in the top half which I've used as inspiration

This week's lovely Play Date Cafe colours - Smokey plum - Cherry Blossom - Lava also provided inspiration and the flower is made using Memory Box Cherry Blossom die (window die also by Memory Box).

For the panel behind the window, I inked using a little sponge and 3 TH distress inks - Dusty Concord, Victorian Velvet and Barn Door, then splashed with water. Sorry about the shadows on the photo, it's that time of day!

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely evening.
