LIM (week 12) card 2

Here is my second attempt this week for the 'Less is More' challenge.
Quite pleased with how this turned out, very fiddly doing the 'out of the frame'
part but otherwise quite easy. The Iris image was a free colouring one found
on the internet btw.I coloured it with chalks and coloured pencils then glittered
the flowers with glamour dust ( just can't stop using the stuff).I hesitated about
using some pale green dew drops at the top left part of the green topper, but
left them off as I like 3 and they seemed too much & too large. LIM is my motto
now so think I made the right decision! hmmmm now I am thinking maybe 3 tiny
green gems would be good........will let you decide. A very HAPPY EASTER to
all the LIMettes too...and Lady LIM Chrissie and LIM Diva Mandi also :O)
ps. Forgot to say I also used pale green shimmering chalk to wash over all the
topper at the end, looks nice and shimmery.

(Mandi the gerbera image was one sent to me by a kind friend .)


here is a closeup of the glitter
doesn't show too well in the
main pic.
