New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!

We have a wonderful new color challenge for you at Less Is More:

Unfortunately I had time to make only one card this time but I'm sure you'll find a lot more inspiration in my design team mates blogs! Click HERE for the challenge post with all the challenge details. 

We are already in September which means we have a new monthly sponsor and this time it's CAS-ual Fridays Stamps. Play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize! Do note the 20% code for Less Is More players!

I decided to play with my Polychromos colored pencils to create ombre pink colored flowers (we allow ombre in this color challenge). I heat embossed a Clearly Besotted flower stamp on black card and spent a nice hour or so coloring in the cute flowers. I finished the coloring with a coat of Wink of Stella. The sentiment, simply stamped, is by Uniko, and the dies I've used come from Winnie and Walter. The rectangle has dotted details in the edge -the photo unfortunately didn't really catch the dots. 

Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along! 


  1. This is just lovely - perfect to get us all in the mood for this week's LIM challenge


  2. Such a striking card here Bonnie and perfect for the LIM challenge too 😊 Viv xx

  3. Very elegant. This card design is very versatile, change the sentiment and it would be perfect for anything from anniversaries to with sympathy occasions.

  4. This is a real beauty and the colouring stunning. It has a real feel of elegance mixed with drama, oh I wish I had your patience in card making!

  5. Striking card and beautiful pencil colouring, Nonni! The ombre pink on black looks amazing. Cute design too. Have a wonderful week. xx

  6. Bold, striking and so very pretty, Nonni ... your colouring of these sweet flowers is beautiful! Hugs, Anita :)

  7. Forgive me for being so late to comment Nonni. Your card is superb! Using the polychromos pencils to add the touch of colour was such a brilliant idea and it works beautifully. This is a really elegant card xx

  8. I got here eventually, sorry for the delay! It was worth the visit though, such fabulous work with your polychromos. You've inspired me to try mine on black car! xx
