Less is More 61 Lucky Dip

Good morning all my blogging friends, I've been having a play today and have made a card for this week's Less is More Challenge.  Do pop over there and have a look at both Chrissie and Mandi's inspirational cards totally gorgeous....  So this is their challenge this week:-

Being the fifth week of the month we have our "Lucky Dip"
We have chosen a
Picture Inspiration
for you from the fabulous

Design Seeds
It is a wonderful source of colour combinations.
This is just such a gorgeous inspiration picture I love those guys at Design Seeds (well worth a visit).  So on to my card, and here it is:-

 The sentiment reads: Thank you for being my friend
And this is what I did to create my card: I inked up an embossing folder (cArt-Us) with various colours of Versa Colour inks and then ran it through my Cuttlebug.  It was quite pale so I went over the surface area again with the same ink pads to give a bit more colour.  I then used some Stamping Up Champagne Mist which I dipped my finger into the lid and then gentle spread a little of this gorgeous glimmer paint over the surface of the embossed area (sorry you can't see that in these photos...)  I then stamped my greeting (Hero Arts) on to a scrap of paper that I had cut off of a scalloped card and raised this onto 3D pads for dimension.  I finished off the card with some pearls and a flower.  Hope that you like it!

Catch up with some of my LIMette buddies soon!

Until next time...

Happy Crafting
