"Less is More"
This is my card, representing weeks 5 - Pastel, 15 - embossing, 25 - Button or Ribbon, and the biggest challenge for me week 28 - inking.
This lovely image is my winning stamp from Wags n Whiskars. I coloured it in with my Reeves water colour pencils, I know, me not using Photoshop to colour?  YES it was awful not using Photoshop as I usually do, the colours are not as pale as I thought they would be and I can't say the colouring is perfect, it's only a few times I have coloured any stamp in my entire card making time, so all in all I'm quite pleased, even though it could be a lot better.  The bow was made as tiny as I could go on the bowmaker my hubby made me, and the embossing is from the Cuttlebug folder Flower Fantasy.  Nothing more to say about it really, but I am going to use it as a Sympathy card for a friend.

Faith - you really are too hard on yourself! I absolutely love this card - the colouring (whatever you say!) is beautifully done and the cut-out image looks perfect on the rounded embossed panel. This is my favourite of all your cards.

Faith I have to say for someone who docent colour often you did an amazing job I love this. That stamp is so pretty and the whole layout of your card is just perfect.
