Spring has disappeared!

We've gale force winds and heavy rain this morning - what a contrast from Wednesday when it was such a beautiful warm Spring day - my poor daffodils in the tub outside are being battered to death in the wind!
It's a while since I have managed to submit anything for the Less Is More Challenge but during the week I promised myself that today I would enter the challenge - Mr Mojo has stubbornly refused to be co-operative this week so have made very little, although thankfully there are a few in the drafts folder made for the Macmillan day which I've not yet shared and this 'case'd' card was one of them.

We could choose 3 previous challenges so mine are
Week 212- Wings, Week 194- Little Creatures and Week 173 - Add a Die Cut

The stamp is from SU's Simply Sketched coloured with Distress Inks and the dies are from the fancy rectangle set.
I love this little bird - and have used it a lot! 
Sympathy Cards are those kinds of things we hope we never had to send but I always have some in my own stash box.
Other challenges -
Whimsy Stamps - Use a Die Cut
Time Out - CAS
Addicted to Stamps - Make Your Mark

Hope the weather is being kind to you - have a great weekend. x

Pretty much the same weather here Viv, my Camelia's were so pretty earlier in the week but pretty sad for themselves today.

But your pretty card has a bright Spring feel to it.

Have a lovely weekend.

This is a lovely card, very appropriate for a sad occasion. Reminds me I should make some myself, this type of card I'm not able to make at any last minute.

Pat said...

I adore this elegant card Viv and the pretty bird looks great on that gorgeous die cut mat. Sympathy cards are not something any of us want to have to send but it is good to have one or two made just in case. x
