Inspired by colours... and Joy

Hey you all, how have you been? I hope you haven't missed any of the yesterday's posts... yes, there were two! Trying to avoid it whenever I can these days, but sometimes you can't go around... :)
I was also thinking about the lovely comments I received lately, and I wish you knew how much they all mean to me! I'm a bad commenter and so I feel doubly indebted every time you leave me one. I'm hoping for the day I will make my blog more interactive, and myself more responsive. In the meantime, whenever you have a question, feel free to pop me an email! Sometimes you leave one in the comment and leave no trail to track you down, therefore if you do so, make sure your email address is included, so that I can respond :)

Back to business, though! 'Cause that's what you came here for, right?? Today there's a set of cards on the menu. My apologies for the first photo, not quite my best effort... the weather's been funny today.

These are a brainstorm child of the PDCC171 challenge (graphics below), although I undoubtedly took some creative freedom with supportive colours.

The rest of inspiration, a very important part of it, lies in the blog of Joy, Less Is More. Love this girl, love her work, and each of the cards is to a large extent influenced by her style. I wish I knew how to execute the 'less is more' part as cleverly as she does. though. This is the style that I'm tempted to overdo if I choose to tackle it. Neither I do so often either, it's making me push my boundaries and I'm not convinced that the results are always purty :)
A couple of close-ups for you...

Eeek, there's so much stuff packed into these, don't ask me to list it all... Pink Paislee, Basic Grey, American Crafts, Studio Calico, Prima, dies from MFT, PTI & Spellbinders, plenty of washi tape... and more, no doubt.
What do you think??
