****This card was showCASed for the LIM "Fireworks" challenge****

This week the gals at Less is More are challenging us to make a card with a dark background with a splash of colour(s).

If you saw this POSTING you will remember that I made 22 cards for a recent SCS get together. This is a sample of the cards that I made:

Needless to say...I used the negative for these cards, this left me with 22+ positive images. Since I mess up some of the die cutting (this was before the magic magnetic platform) I had about 26 die cuts! Being extremely frugal with my paper crafting supplies...I couldn't just throw them away.  I used 1.5 die cuts to create this card. Only 24.5 to go!!  Check back to see what I am doing with the remaining die cuts. :-)

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

That's my girl using up those precious supplies!! LOVE the pop of color from your flowers on the black card base. Very striking Maire!!

A stunning way to use up your die cuts.

Oh this is brilliant and gorgeous.

Jessi Fogan said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I love how you shaded the flowers - so much depth. And it really pops on the black. Now I'm deadly curious to know what you're doing with the rest!

Chrissie said...

Many apologies for my extremely late visit.
I was at a craft show on Friday and singing in a choral concert on Saturday!
This is gorgeous, the use of shading is terrific.
Thanks so much

This is the cleverest card and best use of left-over die cuts that I have ever seen, Marie! So well-deserving of the shoutout from LIM!! Hugs, Darnell

Cathy said...

Beautiful card Marie, fantastic use of your left over diecuts and they are beautifully coloured, Cathy x

I didn't have a fireworks moment for my salvation. I had a falling in love with Jesus in Sunday school when I was a very young child. See the link below for more info.
