Less is More Week 71

Hi everyone hope that you are all well.  Sorry I've not be around much lately.......  Anyway I've had a play today and created this card to enter into this weeks Less is More challenge which is

ONE LAYER CARD

The challenge this week is to

USE A FLOURISH

Chrissie and Mandi have once again created some gorgeous inspiration for us all.  So here is my little card for this week:-


I don't know about you, but I just LOVE flourishes and have a few in my collection!  This particular corner flourish is by Fancy Pants and is in a collection called Pollen Dust.  Its a large 12 x 12 set that I got some years back - it cost a LOT of money but just for this stamp alone I just HAD to have it!!  I thought rather than stamping in black that I would for a change use my Versafine Deep Lagoon.  I also wanted to create more of a "whimsical" feel to the card so added the bird cage and little birdies (Craftwork Cards Gilded Cages).  The sentiment is Papermania.

Of course a card of mine wouldn't be without any sparkle so I added some Glamour Dust here, there and everywhere to the flourish!

Well enjoy the rest of your day, I shall be back around later to leave some comments for my fellow LIMettes!

Take care and until next time...

Happy Crafting

Hi Tina
Thisa looks superb! that flourihs is fabulous. I know the set you mean, I intended getting it some years ago, btu, didn't Maybe i need to remedy that!
I love the addition of the bird cage, but, it would work on it;s own too. Imagine in gold on black...oh I need to go purchase!!! lol

Wow, this is stunning. I love the flourish you've used. I would spend a LOT of money on that one also if I saw it! The colour choice is great, and I love the little birds dotted around, particularly the one sitting on the sentiment!

I have that sentiment set from Papermania, but never get a crisp impression from it - what's your secret?
