LIM - Something Shiny!


Well it's been a while since I entered the Less is More challenge, for no other reason than lack of time or circumstances! So this week I was determined to join in again and discovered that this week's challenge is 'Something Shiny' and here is my effort.
I used the Love & Laughter set from the Summer Mini and embossed the dress, sentiment and heart in silver then, just to add a bit of interest, I shaped two sides using the Adorning Accents Edgelits die (also in the Summer Mini). I used the die again to shape a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock and cut this slightly larger to enable me to layer the image on top and leave a border. After matting this onto a card blank I punched three flowers from Itty Bitty Shapes pack from some card stock which I had previously spritzed with Platinum Shimmer paint and leaves from the Bird Builder punch in Brushed Silver and added these to the top corner. Basic Rhinestones were placed in the centre of the flowers and the heart to finish the card.
Well the weather here is really miserable again - very windy and dark so I guess we're in for yet more rain very soon! Whatever you are doing this weekend have a good one x

  13. Margaret, that dress is gorgeous! I am always so envious of anyone who can do such beautiful embossing. I always make a mess of it when I try to use anything other than clear embossing!
