Less is More week 72 - Theme

Hi LIMettes

Well I'm running in at the last minute with my entry this week, I've been playing catchup since returning on Monday for a little break away.....Celebrating my 20th Wedding Anniversary!  Really wanted to join in this week's theme which is:-

We want to see
Something Shiny
So here is my card:-

My "shiny" addition is the embossed panel in the middle.  I embossed a sheet of craft foil.  I came up with the idea as soon as I saw this week's challenge!   I'm pleased with how its turned out.  The one thing though is the ribbon - IRL its a gorgeous cerise pink but I just cannot do it any justice in my photo.... Another mention please forgive me that the sentiment is ever so slightly off "skew" - but maybe you hadn't noticed - LOL!

Before closing off, I just wanted to say a really BIG thank you to everyone who left me comments on my last LIM challenge card.  It was the most comments I've EVER had for one post - I was so chuffed! so thank you very much for taking the time to leave me your lovely comments.

Until next time....

Happy crafting

Hi Tina. Lovely card, even if the sentiment is "off skew" as you put it! I completely ran out of time to enter this week, was fully intending to so very annoyed. Ah well, there's always next week! x

Oh yes, the embossed foil does look brilliant Tina - and it looks particularly good with the lovely pink ribbon! Your card last week was just gorgeous - not surprised you got all those comments! Happy anniversary! Vicky x

I've embossed regular kitchen foil before, with not stellar results, but I'll have to try the craft foil. It looks seamless! Don't worry about your sentiment...hey, it's a handmade card, and we're not perfect, right? It's fine!
