Less is More - Happy Birthday Jen and New In Colours Sneak Peek!

Good morning! 
Yay it's Saturday...that means only one thing ... It's Less Is More day! And as it's Jen's Birthday (happy birthday Jen!), the challenge is to make a birthday card. So here is my card, for you, my friend Jen, for your birthday!

Knowing Jen as I do, she loves butterflies, Pool Party is her favourite Stampin' Up! colour, and obviously she likes clean and simple. So I have used butterflies, but I have used two of the new 2013-2015 In Colours, one of them similar to Pool Party.

Have you spotted the little butterfly inside the card?
The butterflies are in Cool Cabana and the embossed panel is in the lush brand new Strawberry Slush...aren't they just really yummy colours?! They will be available to order in only 12 days!! Eeeek excited much?!!!

Cardstock - Whisper White, Strawberry Slush, Basic Gray
Embossing/Scoring - Elegant Lines EF, Simply Scored
Dies - Precious Butterflies Sizzlits
Stamp - Teeny Tiny Sentiments 
Ink - Basic Gray

The theme at Sketch Saturday is also to make Jen a birthday card, and you get to choose any of her past sketches! So I just wanted to show you the one I made for there too...

I would have entered this into the LIM challenge, but although it is CAS, I'm not sure there's enough white space to qualify!

Cardstock - Whisper White
Designer Series Paper - In Colour 2011-2013
Stamps - Happy Hour
Tools - Simply Scored

I also hold Stampin' Up! parties and workshops, so if you would like to find out more, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

There are only 2 weeks left to order your retiring items so please don't forget to place your order before it is too late!

I am also entering my card into a new challenge... ART (A Random Thursday), who have this sketch to follow...

I'm off to work now...hope you're having a good time in Istanbul Jen! ;)
Bye for now all!
