Still Getting Dirty

Good morning. Another early day. Sure wish baby slept better! Although, I hear from others that now that I'm a mom, I will never sleep really well again, because there's always something to worry about.

Two more Dirty challenges for you today. The first is to "embrace the white space" which is very hard to do. The inclination is always to add MORE. This is definitely less, and it has "grown" on me!! :-)


The second challenge was to use vellum. I don't know if you can really tell, but there is a vellum overlay on the dandelion image, which softens the colors. I spent forever getting this bow just right, but I like how it looks!


I doubt I will have time to stamp today, so I'm glad I have a small stockpile of stuff to share with you! :-) You stamp for me, okay? Happy Stamping!

These are gorgeous Jessica! I love that leaf border on the first card and you did a great job with the bow on the second one (fab ribbon too!).
Cheers,

I love the vellum overlay - the soft look it creates is so pretty - I'll have to give that a try!

I love the simplicity of the first card, and yet the image is so striking! Lovely job.

Both cards are so pretty! I really have a hard time leaving white space or any space on cards or scrapbook pages. I love the bow on the second card and the colors! Thanks for sharing.
