It's February which means Birthday Celebrations at Less Is More! That's right, Less Is More celebrates it's 7th Anniversary, woot woot! We have 2 sponsors this month, one for each birthday challenge. Along with sponsor prizes there will be surprise prizes too so do play along for a change to win! All the details are in our challenge blog HERE. This current challenge is sponsored by Uniko and Uniko owner and designer Bev is joining us as guest designer. And guess what... In addition to that, previous LIM DT members are joining us too! So there's lots and lots and lots of inspiration in the challenge blog. Welcome back Chrissie, Esther, Jen and Sarah G!
Now let's get onto our theme, "Music", and my DT cards.
Card 1 You Rock
This simple card was made to encourage a friend facing challenging, exciting work stuff this week! I was inspired by both the colors and photo in the current Calling All Sistahs Encouragement challenge. The large Rock-word is by CASual Fridays and to maintain a lot of white space I chose a very small You-word from MFT. I added extra interest with markers and white gel pen and also did some stenciling to spice the card up! This is a masculine card (the recipient is masculine enough to take the floral word!) so no bling or sparkle or other embellies this time. I did splattering with blue perfect pearls mixed with water though so there is some moderate shine!
I'd also like to enter:
(all "rock stars" are to swoon over, the real big ones and the more "mortal" ones too!)
Card 2 Merry Christmas
In this card I used designer paper that has a Christmas carol sheet music and lyrics printed on it. I've used my favorite snowflake die (Joy crafts) and added score lines for extra interest. The sentiment is heat embossed with white. I think the layout is pretty much an old Lim sketch and also Nonni + square piece of card + Joycrafts snowflake is not a new idea either but oh well... You can repeat nice ideass, can't you?!? At least this time the snowflake is not in the middle of the square like before! :)
After taking the photo and looking at it from my laptop screen I started staring that something in the sheet music looks a bit off to me... Why is this melody written in such weird way... And then I took the card in my hand and the thing is I've glued the paper upside down!! So the lyrics and everything is upside down!!! I think I have to send this to someone who doesn't pay much attention to detail!!! This is extra hilarious because I'm a musician and read sheet music every day -now we know I can't do it when I don't get paid! ;)
With this card I'd like to join:
(snowflakes are pretty chilled, aren't they!)
Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along at Less Is More!
