LIM week 25 recipe

It's week 25 now over at 'Less is More', this
week it's a recipe (button or ribbon). I pulled
a muscle in my shoulder/back the other day &
have been in a lot of pain and not sleeping.
However I managed to cobble together a
quick card today. Not brilliant I know,
but I had a 'go' at least. I may do another
.......I may not, depends on this nagging pain
I have, feels like someone is stabbing me with
a sharp knife atm.Sorry for the moan, on with
the card details.
PP pink damask card which I stamped with my
(create a scene) tree stamp in white ink. I embossed
that in seafoam white then shaded the trees with a
little green chalk here and there. I used the dots folder
to emboss another matt which I also shaded with
green chalk.I added some white organza ribbon
which I edged in green with my Promarkers . I used
a just for you sentiment stamp stamped in  lime green ink.
The green was too dark so I embossed it in seafoam
white to make it match the trees( handy hint).I coloured
some clear gems with a promarker in green to match it too.
Hmmm still not sure......sorry photo isn't good either,
looks better in real for yet another pain killer

Lovely card Viv, gorgeous colours. I can really sympathise with you about your shoulder, I had the same thing a couple of months ago. You need to rest it so you are alright for your sons wedding. Ours is in september so a bit longer to wait. Hope you feel better soon.
