LIM week 31 (card 2)

Here is my second card for this
weeks  'Less is More' challenge.
It's week 31 and this time it's
colour and METALLIC.
Tiny 4"x4" linen card, with a matt
of light blue, silver( metallic) mirri
card, then a final matt of white linen
card again. I used a snowflake
( provocraft) die to cut a shape
out of the last layer of card.I then
stuck a small blue gem in the middle,
after first 3-d-ing the last layer.
Simple card but I quite like it,.... hope
it's LIM enough for the challenge.

ps.I  had blue on my mind today
as it seems my new grandbaby is
to be a ......boy!!! I am so excited
now & will soon know what sex my
other grandbaby will be too ....I
am so blessed :O)

Another really lovely Christmas card, Viv! Super matting and layering!

How exciting for you to be having two new grandbabies and knowing the sex. My knitting needles and crochet hook would be sparking!

Sue said...

A beautiful card Viv. Lovely simple but really elegant look to it.

How lovely to be expecting TWO new grandchildren.

This is stunning Viv. Another of those "why didn`t I think of that" cards.
Oooh and a baby boy too, how exciting. Get those needles clicking. Wouldn`t it be fantastic if the other one was a girl? So pleased for you all.

What an unbelievably eye catching design and such perfect execution! You make wonderfully clean and simple cards. Kudos on the grandboy-I have two of my own (boys) and wouldn't know what to do with a girl~
