I have been able to create a couple of cards from bits and pieces on my desk and in boxes that I can reach, this card is one of them and for the Less is More challenge to use a charm this week. I do struggle with the concept of white space, or cream space on this card. As I can't get to my picture stamps to colour, I've simply stamped a text with orchid pink Brilliance pearlescent ink and used the same ink to edge the 4" square card. The little butterfly charm is fixed to the floral ribbon with a pearl brad and then stuck to the MS punched cream layer that I layered onto the card with 3d foam for a little added interest/dimension.
I have another LIM card made so hope it might fit next week's theme .. .. and, I also made a small simple Christmas card with a small Nellie's Choice robin stamp I treated myself to after the last visit to the dentist, and I managed to put a thank you card together for a friend using an image I'd coloured a while back - once I've posted it and given Mr Postie a few days to deliver it, I'll share with you. Still not got the new computer up and working so struggling with the old one, I have been able to visit a few friends but I'm not a fan of the new blogger dashboard style, the list of blogs that I follow scrolls along with the posts - I want it to scroll separately but can't figure out if that's possible - any one know?
