Keep In Touch card

                                                 

Hi there playmates, how is it going? 
I am here to share my latest 'Less is More'
card with you again. We have to make a
 'One layer' card  and also
 'Use a Coloured card base'.
 
  It seems 'AAA CAS card Challenges' are also
running the same challenge and so I am entering
both challenges this time.
 
I decided to water colour my card base, well it
is then a coloured card base, so hoping that is ok.
I have finished painting my craft room I am
 pleased to report yeaaaah!
 
 Pics soon, I hope... when I get it all tidied
 up. It has left me exhausted though, well that
 and  cleaning up dust from our recent renovations
 in the house (it's everywhere grrr) and scrubbing
 floors, washing/ironing curtains etc.
 
I am trying to rest mostly now lol........feeling
 my age for sure !!! we did get some swimming
 done on Sunday which was great as usual. My poor
 OH is still plastering, painting and fitting shelves.
 It never ends does it!
 
Ok sorry for rambling again, come and have 
a peek at my card.

We are hoping to start painting soon, if the weather doesn't get too hot, old age won't take it LOL.

Such a pretty pink background! Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

Fabulous card, love the shade of pink you picked and who would have guessed that you would use a flower stamp!

Ludeke said...

I love this Card and the way you coloured it in the same coloure like the background

Kim Heggins said...

Absolutely beautiful...love that gorgeous color.

Maria Rodriguez. said...

Oh Vivien, that water color you achieve for your card base is amazing, love the bright, intense pink, I'm venturing into guessing it's Picked Raspberry?
Fabulous flower image too, my friend.
Hugs,
Maria.

TaeEun said...

This is a gorgeous one layer card and so pretty, Vivien!!! Love the bright color!!!

Sharon said...

Brilliant! What better way to coordinate the colours on your card than to water colour your own base. Superb design and a lovely image too. Love it. It is lovely and bright but so feminine at the same time. Thanks so much for popping this in at Less is More xx
