Less is More challenge

Hi All
Hope that you are all having a good weekend.
This weeks challenge at Less is More is ( http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk ) to use the colours green and yellow so I am sure that there will be lots of spring flower cards submitted this week. Yesterday seemed very spring like with lots of sunshine but today it is raining and very cold again .

I have used one of my favourite stampsets a Too Kind which is a two part stampset to produce different shades within the flowers. This is what I have produced : 



To make this card I used the following :
Cardstock : So Saffron, Pistachio Pudding, Natural Vanilla
Inks : Summer Starfruit, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pistachio Pudding, Versamark
Embossing Powder : Clear, Heat gun, sponges
Stampsets : En Francais, Too kind

I really like the effect of the En Francais stamped and embossed in clear embossing powder and then gentle sponging to create subtle shadowing.
I hope that you like it too 

Until next time
Margaret x
