A Good Read

A very Happy Sunday to all,

I have a card for you today using a new set of stamp from Happy Little Stamper-Wish you were here. This isn't a Christmas set but I decided to make it one!

This was inspired by the latest 'one layer cards' challenge at Less is More


I thought I was going to give this challenge a miss but then deicded to have a look at all the books I had read recently. Then a light bulb moment hit me when I saw a book that my blogging friend Shauna recommended to me. It is called the 'Paris Architect' by Charles Belfoure. It is one of those books you can not put down. If you want to see find out more about this book, just click here.

I hunted to find a sketch I could use and went with the latest at Freshly Made Sketches-flipping it and using score lines for the horizontal line and my snowflake stamp as the circle. Here my snowflake stamp is illuminating the Eiffel Tower......I can't believe how many ways this stamp can be used!

I will also enter this into the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More

Have a fun Sunday x

  2. This looks absolutely super! Firstly, great take on the sketch. Then I love the star, so dramatic and really taking the eye in to the focal point. The typewriter font of the sentiment works perfectly for the feel of this card. The whole design is an awesome way of tying in a book for our challenge, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Love your take on the book challenge and that star is so versatile isn't it. Just too clever and a perfectly CAS design. Thanks for playing along with us at Less is More. Sarah xx
