Pastel colours


is the theme over on Less is more


I used my Inca rubber stamp Round Pentas stamped in the pastel green
I made a mask of the stamp & stamped over the image with black to give a bit of definition.


I used the image 3 times


and finished by stamping the happy birthday sentiment straight onto the card.

I'd also like to enter this for the Cute Card Thursday challenge - signs of spring

Hi Rachel love your images, they are super
For me I think the sentiment could have gone a smidge lower
But a great card
Thank you! as always

It could have been stamped better too Mandi :-)It is a clear stamp & with it being small it squidged a bit ...
