Wednesday Words

A couple of cards to share today.

First up is a card with lots of circles which uses the layout from Unscripted Sketches and the theme from Less is More.

I made this card with my oldest grandson in mind and picked his favourite colours for the sentiment and cascading sequins.  He's recently achieved two swimming awards which involved tasks like picking up a brick from the bottom, swimming set distances and treading water for a set time. And then he told me the second award had to be completed wearing clothes - quite an achievement for a nine year old!

I sprinkled stickles glitter quite liberally across this card to really make it sparkle and match the sentiment - it doesn't really show up that well in the photo.


Less is More
The theme for your cards this week is 

Stamp: Joanna Sheen, Words One; Uniko Studio, A Gift For You
Inks: Memento, lady bug, tangelo, dandelion
Embellishments: Stickles, Star Dust

  4. Wow Jane! That is a great card. I was scanning the entries at Less is More...looking for those ones that "POP" and catch your eye. I was so glad to see it was your card! Way to go girl. Did you get into the DT design blog yet? I added you to editors.
    Hugs, Victoria

  5. Hi Jane - your card here is an outstanding take on the Unscripted Challenge, and especially for your grandson, noting his accomplishments which, I agree, are quite impressive! He will be delighted with this, as I am! Fabulous "medal" and the sparkly confetti is such an extra special touch! I sooooo appreciate your visit to my blog and comment on my "congratulations ink blobs.' You've made my day! Looks like you and I are fans of both Uniko and Clearly Besotted products. Oh, to win the lottery so I could buy allll their products! Off to see more of your cards.
