A SET OF "DON'T OFTENS"



This set of cards is my entry for the PLAY DATE CAFE colour challenge where the colours this week are pink, purple, a sort of orangey yellow, green and white.



They also represent a set of don't oftens for me in that I don't often make cards these days, I don't often stamp in anything other than black and I don't often work this simply...........but then why not challenge yourself every now and then?


The colours suggest flowers and indeed SARAHS inspiration photo is of flowers but not wanting to go with too traditional a flower look I decided to use these seed pod/ retro flower looking stamps are by ELUSIVE IMAGES that I aquired recently.

I love this simple style, but it's deceptive as you have to get the composition just right - and you have! Lovely!
