Week 32 one layer ( seeing double)

Here is my latest LIM card for the
'Less is More' challenge once again.
This week it's the one layer card ( gulp),
not a fav of mine but he- ho. The theme
is  also 'seeing double' btw..I had an idea
..............but really messed up the card,
so that ended up straight in the round
file :O)
Made another and this time it turned out
ok ...I think...you will be the judge.
Computer generated wording, chalked
background using a nestie as a template.
I tried distress inks but made one
almighty mess....so used the trusty chalks
instead. I stamped  two Hobby Art seed
heads in black momento ink, one without
reinking for a lighter shade.I am so
grateful to their ladyships Chrissie & Mandi,
as I am quite happy to stamp away now. I
was so frightened of doing that in the
beginning! Anyway I digress........I finished
my card by adding some glamour dust.
Have a lovely weekend everyone whatever
you are doing. I have a banana cake in the
oven just now & earlier tidied my wardrobe
& other drawers etc......am so happy about
that :O)
ps. I wanted to maybe add a ribbon but not sure
we are allowed in one card week ???

  6. This is lovely Viv, I'm really glad that you are a dab hand at direct stamping these days.
    It's fine to add a ribbon... as long as it's still CAS it's fine!
    Thanks so much
