A day to celebrate LIM GDT card

Good morning friends, I am very excited today as I
have been chosen as a Guest Designer for 'Less is More'
this week. Er and yes that is me you see jumping
 up and down ;)
 
 
 
 Whoo hoo what an honour..... thank you so much
 Chrissie ! .....as we have an extra Sat this month it's
 also a lucky dip challenge.
 
 
 
 Not only that, .........as if that isn't exciting enough 
already ....it's also LIM's 200th challenge too !
Can't believe we are now at the 200 mark, the
challenge has gone from strength to strength.Little did
 Chrissie  & Mandi know just how popular the
 challenges  would become!....many Congratulations!!
 
 
 
 So many fabulous card makers enter every week now.
I am always blown away by the amazing cards you
 all make, and the inspiration of course. Anyway I
 must stop rambling now and get  on with showing
 you what I came up with.
This time  the theme is to be.....


"Celebrations"
 
 
How very apt I thought for this week's challenge. I 
knew which stamp to use at once luckily. My 
'A day to celebrate' one by Penny Black.
 
 
 
Please pop on over to LIM and see all the fabulous
cards Chrissie and the DT have made. Do join in too,
it's a super easy one this week I think ;)
 
 
 Have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.
  Come and have a closer look  at my card.....
 
 
 
ps.quick update.....yes I am feeling better now, thank
 you  so much  to all who asked. Also our burglar pleaded
 guilty in  court, (after an age waiting around) so awaiting 
sentencing now next month.
 
 
 
Celebrate, LIM, CAS turquoise
 
 
 
White Linen card
Pale Turquoise card
(both from Papermill direct)
Net and silver paper from stash(very old)
Sentiment by Penny Black 'Gratitude'
Momento 'Tuxedo Black' ink
Natural Twine
Silver sequins
Cuttlebug E/F (on white card bit)
Glamour Dust (on  letter C )
Crop -a -dile corner chomper
 
 
I layered some Pale Turquoise card over my White
 Linen base card.  I then added a few strips of spotty
 net,white embossed card and silver paper.


I stamped my Penny Black sentiment on more Turquoise
 card and added some  twine. I highlighted the first letter
 using my Glamour dust and quickie glue pen.
A few silver sequins completed my card.
