Less is More Challenge #170

Another Sunday, another challenge commences for Less is More.  This week it is a colour challenge - use either three colours or three shades of the same colour.  I eventually settled on three colours, choosing those from some washi tape I wanted to use on my baby boy card - navy, green and soft blue.
The elephant, from the Stampin' Up! set called Zoo Babies, is stamped in Soft Sky ink and the 'Sweet' die cut is by The Crafter's Workshop.  I die cut the word from the front panel, covered some spare card with the washi tape, then cut it out and replaced it into the negative space, remembering to add the little centres from both the 'e's.  The baby letters are from a Kelly Purkey letter set.  I'm photographing this late afternoon, and the light has already faded, now that we are well into Autumn.  I'll have to start earlier next time, right!
