A Touch of Red


A touch of red is the theme of this weeks Less is More challenge, I used an Inkadinkado swirl stamp and punched some red flowers for the 'touch' and coloured the 'leaves with pastel crayons. Between starting and finishing this card we went for a walk around our local country park and I managed to twist my ankle rather badly, I know I should be sitting with said ankle raised but i'll do that later when (and if) there's something interesting on the TV.

Take care with that ankle.... this is a super card and I love your red touches!
If you could link just this card to our challenge instead of your whole blog it will make finding your card easier later in the week if you have added other cards in the interim.
Hope the ankle improves and have a good week.

Lovely card. I love the flowers.
Hope your ankle mends soon. Hopefully your shows in the UK are better than what is on the TV here; total garbage on our stations. :(

A bag of frozen peas for your ankle and a gold star for you - that's another stunning card Maureen. I love the elegant swirls. Hope you are being good and sitting with said ankle raised, and that it will soon recover.
