One Layer Spots card

Hi there friends, it's Saturday again and I am here to share another 'Less is More' card. It's the dreaded 'One Layer' card this time and 'Spots'. I am still not keen on one layer cards but hey ho, this is what I came up with.
I see my lovely DT buddy Maria from 'The Flower Challenge' is guesting over at 'LIM' this time too. She made a super card, do check out her blog also, she makes such beautiful cards!
I have an early birthday present too, (it's not until August !) and I am sure I will find a few more things by then lol. Anyway I suggested getting this as an early birthday present and it went down well with my OH as he never knows what to buy me ;) 
I took my camera in to be fixed as the photo's were just too bright when I tried to take a photo. It took the young man about a minute to tell me I had altered the setting and had it set too high...cue red face he he. I had messed with that setting too (the little plus/minus thing) thinking it might be that and still couldn't figure it out ....(she quickly said in her defence!).

Whilst I was there I looked at their tripods (as you do) and chose one I win win really ! My old one was inherited and very very old. Now I can add my camera and release it very easily without peering into the bottom of the camera to look where the screw hole is everytime! the plate doesn't tilt/move around when I don't want it too and it's also much lighter.
It's a Calumet 7300 btw. for anyone interested. I am using already it...well I wasn't going to wait until August now was I lol ;) Right must dash as I have a victoria sponge cooking in my oven...can you smell it?...ooh that yummy vanilla smell is to die for!

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned !...oh and come and see my card below and thanks for visiting ;)........well done for reading all this rambling.....and breathe!

OH! Viv this is so beautiful, absolutely gorgeous.

Yep! I can smell the sponge - yummy, I was going to make one this week and decided to try 2 new cake thingys, One lot I had to throw out, it was supposed to be lemon fingers and it was so sweet we couldn't eat it. (yep definitely the recipe not me) the others were jam insert sponge muffins, something else I'm not going to make again! Victoria sponge will be made on Monday LOL.

Your tripod sounds great, isn't it lovely when you get something you REALLY want and it's early for your birthday too? LOL.
Have a great weekend.

A fantastic take on our theme. L LOVE the color scheme, the stenciling and that gorgeous Uniko image with some spots of its own. Thank you so much for playing with us at Less Is More.
