Less is More and Allsorts challenge

This is my first ever entry into the Less is More sketch challenge, I've often looked at other peoples entries but been a bit frightened of all of the white space but I really enjoyed it, it is also my entry to the Allsorts challenge which was to use my 2 favourite colours "Lemon and Lime" I love them so much that my wedding theme was those exact colours so it was a pleasure to do this challenge.



This is the Less is More sketch

The papers used are from the free Pink Petticoat kit "Lifes Lemons" and the lemons were cut on my Silhouette machine. I've been making a real effort to use up things that I already have primted instead of printing new papers off and these particular papers have been hanging around in my paper file for at least 2 years I think s it was good to finally give them an outing.


Hope you like them
