spring challenge

This is my card for the Less is More challenge this week, with a spring theme. The hellebore image stamp  is from Elusive Images, stamped in grey versafine and colopured with watercolour pencils, matted onto green card. I tried following the tutorial on creating greetings, and eventually managed to do this one, in what I hoped would be a matching green - my version of Word7 didn't quite follow the instructions; it was ok until it got to the point of moving the boxes as a unit, which is when it didn't.
After around an hour of cursing everything microsoft, I decided to stick with this version, which I was reasonably happy with - also before I ruined it by trying to tweak it!


  1. I'm glad you had a go at the tutorial... the grouping can be tricky but it's worth sorting it to be able to move the sentiment as a whole to where it's needed.
    Matching fonts can prove difficult too, maybe we should collate a list of fonts which complement each other well.
    The hellebores are out in my garden at the moment... they are simply lovely as is your card.
    Thank for joining us and we hope to see you again next week.

  2. Lovely card for the challenge Veronica. I love that image and you did really well with the wording. I really would like to join in the Less is More Challenge but as the saying goes 'I don't have time to spit at the moment', lol! Ah well, maybe things will settle down after the wedding towards the end of May. Hmmmm, and pigs might fly, Ha! Ha!
