Week 17 LIM ( card 2)

Here is my second card for this weeks LIM challenge at
'Less is More'.
I used TH distress inks, ( faded a bit by misting with water
then dabbing with a tissue)....technical term....not!
Squares cut with nesties,then I stamped some daisies in
white with a tapestry stamp and embossed with seafoam
white. Added a bit of recycled string ( from a wedding
favour jam pot lol). Then punched a butterfly and distress
inked that to match. I added some tiny Papermania
shimmer dots to the butterfly to finish it off. I am off to sit
in the sun for a while now, OH pestering me saying I am
always at my computer lol!.......he doesn't know about my
LIMitous !!!!!
ps. Hmmm I look again I see the flutterby should have
been placed on the pink square or the string on the blue one,
oh well at least we learn by our mistakes.

SOOO beautiful! The colours are great and I like the design idea - to stamp these flowers it white - so subtle...
A feast for the eyes!

I love it that despite planning out your card you're still being critical about what might have made it better once it's done... it's super by the way, great design and lovely colours!
Great crafting Viv!
Thanks so much for this super second submission.
