Less is More - Sketch

A bit late this week with the Less is More challenge, had to work Saturday morning and then was out for a meal on the evening so didn't get much time for crafting.

This weeks challenge is a sketch, which I think is brilliant, it's so versitile and there are some amazing creations already submitted. This is week 52 for Mandi & Chrissie and may I say what a great year it has been, have loved this challenge and look forward to it every week. Mandi & Chrissie are so dedicated and visit and comment on every card!

This week I got out my Clarity balloon stamps and even though I always struggle with one layer, I kept this card one layer! The ballons are coloured with Prismas, which I am still learning how to use, did a bit of sponging for the background and embossed lines down the edge of the image. The sentiment is from LOTV and stamped direct onto the card! :)

A massive thank you to Mandi & Chrissie for these fantastic challenges week after week and here's to the next 52 weeks :)
