Mixed Bunch at Less is More

Well survived the bows and arrows (see previous post).  It was lots of fun, kids did really well.  Ross especially, he got 4 golds and one right in the centre.  He's really taken to it.  Holly got one gold.  As beginners we weren't shooting the full range distance but they still did pretty well.  Yeh I know you are dying to ask what did Mum get? Well ever heard the saying "couldn't hit a barn door!"  Ok not quite as bad as that, I did hit the blue (it goes gold, red, blue, black, white).  My arrows saw a lot of white! Oh and some straw and the floor....... 

Anyhoos lets talk about my card.  This is for Less is More which has an interesting challenge this week.  You can either CASe Jen's card or Chrissie's or a mix of both.  Both are great.  I've gone with Jen's card because I recently made a card using the technique on Chrissie's. You can see Jen's below. 

I loved the Crumb Cake and Pool Party together but as I wanted to colour the petals on my flower and don't have a Pool Party marker I made my card with Baja Breeze.  I embossed my Mixed Bunch flower in White Embossing Powder then punched out with the Blossom Punch.  Added a silver brad to the middle.  Instead of piercing I used my White Gel Pen to add some faux stitching around the edge of the Crumb Cake panel.  The ribbon banner is Pool Party with an Itty Bitty Banner sentiment which is White Embossed. 

Thanks for a fun challenge this week ladies!

Gorgeous card, love those colours. I used to go to archery from time to time with my husband, but was relegated to being a spectator after shooting a bird, which was way above in a tree....Valerie

Hugs Claudia

Bonnie said...

Oh, I love this big, blue daisy with the pearl in the center!

Vicky Hayes said...

The flower is a good substitute for Jen's label Aileen and your faux stitching is a great idea! Vicky x

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well. Here's me, mouth agape. You have done an absolutely beautiful card, Aileen. It's a great CASE of Jen's card, but really popped up to a new level, IMHO, with that flower! So a winner to me and I'm so pinning this!!

Jenny said...

At least you enjoyed yourself at archery.... we have to let the kids do better than us sometimes *wink* :0)
The flower looks amazing and sits perfectly in place of the label.... lurve the faux stitching!
