Hello friends... have another card to share. This one is for the new LIM challenge and for the current CAS(e) this Sketch challenge. Must pause for a moment and wish Chrissie, Mandi and Less is More a great big Happy Birthday!! LIM just turned two.. can't believe that Chrissie and Mandi have been putting forth a new challenge each week two years!! And in that time I have only missed I think two challenges. I missed the very first one because by the time I discovered LIM the challenge was closed and then I missed another for some reason that I don't remember. Anywhoo... here is to many more years of fun challenges with Less is More!
The LIM challenge this week is to use kraft and cream (or kreme). Didn't have to ask me twice to make a card for that challenge as I love to combine kraft with just about any color. But there is something so very classic and elegant about kraft and cream. For my card I used a newly acquire Penny Black stamp called "dreamy", as well as a Penny Black sentiment "tiniest". I stamped the image using SU!'s Crumb Cake ink and then brushed on some Diamond Stickles. Unfortunately, you cannot see the Stickles in the photo. I rounded one corner of the piece and then rounded the corresponding corner on the card base. The sentiment was stamped using Memento Rich Cocoa ink to keep things monochromatic. I created the little butterfly embellishments by threading some twine through the buttons and trimming the ends as you see. The each button was adhered to a Studio Calico veneer butterfly and then adhered to the card. I wasn't going to add the third butterfly embellishment, but I decided to go with the "rule of 3" and add the third one.
Thanks for stopping by....
