Less Is More Week 131

Good Afternoon,

I have been very very lucky at Less Is More lately, I was chosen as the June winner and this card was showCASed this yesterday.  However it seems like my luck has run out, as Chrissie and Jen have set a colour challenge and the colours are my avoid like mad colours! However I am not one to quit that easily so I took a very literal view with my design and dug out my ink dusters.

Sorry some of the colours look slightly different in the photo
Supplies Used:
Inkylicious - The Coppice
Inkylicious - Ink Dusters
Stampin Up - Teeny Tiny Sentiments

And here is the colour palette for this week.

I can't wait to see what everybody else comes up with as I know these colours will be right up some of your streets.

Thanks for visiting
