Bella With Balloons A Little Naked today :)

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Over the weekend, I got to play, and boy did I play :)

Well it was better than watching the rain continuously coming down and flooding the garden.

I decided to try my hand again at the Less Is More Challenge

who had a sketch to follow, well one of two actually  - circular or square, I went with the square one.

Now I would like to say I had not been drinking when I took these photographs although the weather did drive us to it and I know it is naked, non of my usual over kill of embellishments :)  But think the image says it all with out.
I made a Birthday Card
The base layer and contrast is a holographic purple card.
The sentiment is from the little labels set from Wild Rose Studios

I chose the Image Bella With Balloons which you can find here along with all the other gorgeous images of this cute little elephant.  I coloured her in with my copics in the Warm Greys and the BV, R and V colour themes. 
If you want to see more of the collection or be inspired by others hop and see us on
