LIM (week 15)

It's week 15 now over at 'Less is More' &
this week it's the dreaded 'one layer card'
& embossing as the theme.I made two cards
which I wasn't happy with, (one tiny black card
with a bee) & (then a flower & bee one),........
then decided on a love/Paris theme and an A6
card.I made SIX of these........much pulling out
of hair and very inky hands. I almost completed
each card only to smudge one element at the last
minute!!! Arrrggghhhhhh!!!! anyway here is  my final
effort............don't think there will be more!!!!!















Recipe
A6 card, I stamped various images
from Royal Langnickel 'Viva France'
stamps.Then I used my sentiment
stamp again,I used my embossing pen
and some gold embossing powder
for bubbles. I  dry embossed some
small hearts at the side and glittered
the Eiffel tower with glamour dust.

Lovely card, Viv. I know just how you feel about the smudges. I always seem to have a pile of fopped cards to recycle after trying a LIM challenge.

Your cards always look fab Viv - I'd never guess you'd smudged anything! Anyway, save the ones with smudges and stick something on them - shame to let them go to waste! Vx
