LIM week 10 ( card 1)

Another challenge from 'Less is More' again.
You do get us thinking Mandi and Chrissie!
........and tearing our hair out.......and cause us
much consternation....but we love the challenges
all the same. Thanks so much for thinking 
of new things and stretching us every week! 
I was determined to just make one card this
week .......alas I am addicted so already working 
on card no 2!!! LIMette for sure!!!! 
My first card was printed on the computer,
with a quote from Mother Teresa , (Passions Conflict )font.
I then attempted to emboss using my nestie, I say attempt
ahem...( must try harder). Then I used another nestie to chalk
around the edge as a guide . A few punched and chalked flowers
and tiny pearls added....looked a bit bare otherwise!!! Hope you like
the result, I am still deciding!!Have a lovely weekend everyone.
The verse may not be clear it says " Yesterday is gone , Tomorrow has
yet to come, We have only today, Let us begin.

I think your card is beautiful
If Im picking Id say it could have come down just a smidge. whilst its better to leave a bigger gap at the bottom that the top [as with pictures on the wall] I do think it would have been slightly better lower.
Thanks as always Viv

Chrissie said...

This is so pretty!
If you wanted to even up the gaps top and bottom, you could always have tried to see what the flowers would have looked like below the embossing!
Only a thought... it's great as is!
I'm glad we're keeping you challenged!
