Less Is More - neutrals

I ought to be packing, dismantling furniture and doing the washing and ironing, but DH is catching up on some much-needed sleep. I didn't want to wake him up so I sneaked off into my craft room instead. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Less Is More want neutrals this week. Although I just love Mandi's mosaic card the best, it is a design which I tend to fall back on when I need to throw together a quick card and I have no tools with me. And there will be a LOT of times like that over the next couple of months, so I'm saving it up. I went with a Cuttlebug and Spellbinders fest as I may not be able to use those for a while. I made two more with a white background, but I'm not entirely happy with the design. I'll add the greetings as I need them, probably just beneath the bows. Simon Says Stamp are still on their "anything goes" challenge so I'll be one of hundreds on there!

Right. I need to get my act together and try to decide what to pack, what to air-freight and prioritise it (if we have air-freight) and help DH dismantle furniture. So... deep breath, air-con ON and bye for now!

So like your card design, both colour ways work really well.
Have a safe journey.

These are fabulous Squirrel, the second just has the edge for me. Thank you for your complements of my card
I struggled with neutrals!

Thank you very much

Super cards but I love the drama of the black one. x

Lovely cards - 2 different looks just by changing the colours.

Love both of your cards!! What a cool technique to switch the colors. Thanks so much for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
