Hello everyone, another dark dismal rainy day, when is this going to end? the weather men say tomorrow, and it will get colder for a couple of days, then the rain or even snow will come in for the weekend aarrrrrgggghhhh!

My mother would have been 100 this weekend (13/01/13).  My 4 brothers and their wives and myself and hubby are meeting at my youngest brother in the West country from different places of the UK.  A REALLY good excuse to get together, we haven't all been together for 2 years, so this will be a lovely and talk about old times about her. LOL.  SO it would be good for a little sunshine to shine on us for a change.

Anyhow, on to my card.

.The Less is More challenge - I am entering again, 2 weeks running after being MIA for so long.  The criteria being -

The beginning of a new year and the beginning of a new month means one thing at "Less is More" and that is a colour challenge and for this time we have chosen 
with a touch or a splash, a hint or suggestion, a dab or a  patch of 
a colour of your choice!

I have done a card with maybe too much colour - nah! can't be, can it? Oh! well here it is.  The Victorian lady is off the web, why did I think of corsets? goodness only knows how my mind works sometimes, (maybe 'cause after Xmas I need one LOL) but I had to find a quote or something to go with it, plain Happy Birthday wouldn't do. I came across this one and a card was made, so to speak.  I coloured her corset in PS then 3D'd her on photo paper, I don't often use photo paper and had forgotten how much shine it gives, in this case the lady did seem to be off the card.  Hope you like it.

My goodness Faith, just the thought of having to wear something like that makes me feel faint. It has made a gorgeous card though.
