One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Dynamic Duo # 43 and Less is More

This week  Dynamic Duos colors have a fresh, springy combination of sky blue and grass green. And the More is Less challenge is asking for :ONE LAYER, but they are also asking for SPOTS and STRIPES!  I did ONE big spot by doing a masking and sponging in the aqua mist color, then adding a bit of the wreath from Birds and Blooms.  I added the stripe on the side like it could be a ribbon...Since I was short of sympathy cards, that is what I decided to use for my sentiment.  I normally don't combine two challenges because my mind just doesn't work that way, but this time it just came together so nicely (I think, at least!).

ALL products are PTI
paper:  white
ink:  aqua mist, new leaf
stamps:  Birds and Blooms, Fillable Frames Additions
