What IS my style? What's Yours?

Well, that's a good question.   Over at Die Cut Diva's this month, Hannah set the challenge ~ "Show off your style".... this got me thinking.   I'm not sure if I HAVE a style. I like trying different things... but I know I like doing cards with a bit of embellishment but also not too much... a bit graphic but not to CAS.... does that make sense?   I've tried Shabby Chic... lots of hard work! but oh so pretty....  Love using my Distress inks to paint,
On the whole, I think I like things reasonably simple.  Yes, that's me

So here is my first entry in the challenge.
Is this my style?

I used my Sizzix Die to cut the leaves. Martha Stewart punch, papers from a pack by Craftworkcards which came free with Simply Cards magazine. And a Hero Arts stamp - got it last week and this is the first time it's been inked up. The flowers were a bargain. I bought a posy of flowers for $2.50 and pull all the flowers off the stems.... got around 20 flowers and even some leaves.  Just glued them onto a tiny punched circle for stability.

I am entering this into Hero Arts flower challenge ( even if the flower isn't a HA stamp), CAS-ual Friday's Text challenge - hope it fits okay there.

So what's your style.... or are you like me.... have fun trying all sorts!

My style? I really don't think I have one, Dawn. Not everyone does, right? I'm like you. I enjoy trying all different kinds of styles and techniques. I don't do shabby very well, I know that, or true CAS, although most of my cards are fairly simple. . .I guess if simple is a style, then that's me too. Love your beautiful card! That is one, gorgeous flower!

HI Dawn what a great entry. I'm like you - I don't thiink I have a style (well one that is known ;P). I use to clutter everything onto my cards. Lately though I've been paring it down. Not sure though I'd go as far as to say I have reached simple yet. Love your card, that flower, the colours the style of it. Very, very pretty xoxoxoxoxo

Beautiful card! I am like you and like to mix it up! Although people say they can tell it is my card so I must have some style. :)
