Up, up and away

It's Saturday so it's Less is More day, and today's challenge is 'Up, Up and away'.  Funnily enough, this suited me down to the ground as I've had a card in mind for a while.

A few weeks ago I was gutted to find that Meljens Designs was closing it's shop.  Melissa has decided to go back to Etsy and do other things (although she's taking some of her favourite digis with her).  Now, as with most digi designers I use, I had a wish list to purchase before the shop shut for good and one of them was perfect for this challenge.  Now, when people say less is more to me I instantly think of lots of white - but that doesn't have to be the case.  When I first saw the balloon design from Meljens I saw it in pastel colours. Does anyone else just look at an image and know how you want it to be coloured?  Anyway, for ages I have had some card stock which reminds me of clouds.  I've got it in various colours (although I seem to have Borrowers in my craft room and they've 'borrowed' most of it, along with my mod podge and two bone folders!).  I did find it in pink, but that is fine because - for some bizarre reason - that's what I'd got in my head.  I did want to add the text on the matching blue but I've had to use some other blue card stock as I wanted to enter the challenge and I have run out of patience searching for things this week.  Although my craft room got a really good tidy and I still can't find my mod podge, grrr.

Anyway, here is my pink and pastel 'Less is More' challenge card.  I hope you like it.

Thanks for reading
