Green and Yellow colour challenge

Hello everyone!  I'm so happy to be sharing a card with you today joining in the Less is More colour challenge - firstly, because I always enjoy entering their challenges when I can, and secondly, because today I'm actually feeling well enough to sit at my craft desk.  It's hard to create with a thumping headache every day!  I was inspired by the bright springy cards that were on display on the LIM blog, and so tackled my first attempt at using Altenew's Painted Flowers stamp set.


Wow, this set is amazing - though I must admit to needing some direction as to how to use it.  If you don't know this set, it has 4 flowers, each with 3-step stamping, plus other leaves etc - do look for it on Pinterest, as there are some beautiful examples of what can be achieved with this set.  My attempt uses only two flowers, plus leaves, and I've used two shades of yellow (Memento Cantaloupe and Luxe Dandelion) and green (Memento Luxe, pear tart and pistachio).  Can I say, I'm delighted with how this turned out and will definitely try to do something more adventurous with my next try.  The sentiment is by Inspired by Stamping.
