PBSC Say It With Flowers and another Less Is More

Hello everyone, hope your Sunday is going well ...... mine started better than expected with the result from the Malaysian Grand Prix!  And we have another race next weekend too, bonus!

Two little cards for you this afternoon - the first is for the PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE with their theme of Say It With Flowers .....

I've used my new Scented Garden stamp from Penny Black, painted with distress inks.  Paper is from an old pad of K&Co and the matting card from stash.  EK Success retro flower punches and sentiment from Hero Arts.

And still on the theme of flowers, this one is for LESS IS MORE Focus On The Sentiment challenge.  I have to say, these one layer cards can be tricky little devils ......

Loving that quote, but can't remember what make it is, it is either Hero Arts or Penny Black.  I cut a frame with two Nesties in a sheet of Eclipse masking paper and then, having spent ages trying to line them up on the card, stamped over with a textile design stamp, then I chalked over that with some light green and peeled off the masks.  Stamped the sentiment and the tiny Magenta flowers to which I added a smudge of colour with distress inks.

Hugs, Sxx

I can see F1 inspiration in both of your cards. Your first one reminded me of the grid and Charlie Whiting's control box and your second card has a fabulous frame that reminds me of the old scrubbed tyres. Stunning inspiration... Loving both cards and have no favourite:-)

I was so VeRy happy when JB came 2nd this morning, i've had the lurgy for four weeks now and my voice comes and goes so it was very funny to try and support him as he just got better and better and got a superb result.

So good to know another F1 fan and China next week looks like being an interesting race. I usually follow Martin Brundle, James Allen and Jake Humphrey on Twitter to keep up with what's happening.

Hope you feel much better very soon, take care:-)
