This week's LIM

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all having a nice day. It's lovely and mild here today but the sky is getting darker and darker, there's going to be a downpour!

This week over at the Less is More Challenge it's a one layer card and the theme is "script".



This was my third attempt - the first two ideas failed miserably!

Heart stamp is from Stampin Up, inked in Vintage Sepia, then sponged with Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick DI's.  I then added the tiniest scrap of lace and a pearl to each heart.

Thanks for popping in - wishing you all a great week.

Suze xx

For someone who says that they're not very good at vintage I would say that you have nailed it! Love the soft colours x

Sasha said...

I love the stamp you used, Suze. Lovely muted colours, too, and the pretty pearls add the perfect touch. So pretty :)

Susan said...

Suze, I failed miserably SEVERAL times this week! I LOVE what you've ended up with..so it was definitely worth the work! I'm guessing that the heart stamp has the script already on it? What a wonderful stamp....and the addition of the pearls and lace is perfect! LOVE it!

Anja said...

Lovely pastel colours and a great design.

Jenny said...

So so pretty Suze, perfect placement and love the little pearl accents, great finishing touch :0)
I think everyone I've visited this week has had a few trashed cards.... Including myself! these OLC are so unforgiving. :0)
