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.
