LIM is Two!

Hi folks,

There's birthday celebrations today over at the Less is More Challenge - "Two Today!" - so I felt I had to make the extra effort to join in this week.

It's a colour challenge - KRAFT & KREME (or for the less posh - buff and cream!).











I started with a kraft card and die cut an aperture with a Stampin Up Framelet.  Added a punched lace strip (again Stampin Up), a couple of Hero Art Butterflies.  I adhered a  panel of Stampin Up Very Vanilla card on the inside and stamped a Tina Wenke sentiment in SU Crumb Cake.






I've missed doing the rounds the last couple of days so I will be round to visit you all this evening.

(I'm having a fiddle about with my block background today - instigated by poor cross-eyed Darnell who was having trouble reading white writing on black, so I thought I'd reverse it and see if it was any easier for folks to read - I'll spend a bit of time tweaking it later!).

Okay dokes, need to go and feed the brood.

Thanks for popping in today,

See you all soon.

Suze xx

Beautifully placed sentiment and the lace panel and butterflies give it a very delicate and elegant look ...for a buff and cream card hee he x

Great card - aperture is terrific and the punched strip looks so pretty (something I never normally associate with Kraft!!)

The aperture with the butterflies and 'trellis' is stunning. A great card.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Well, if I may say so, it would have been nice if at least one of the ladies would have said they find the black letters on white background easier to read, so's I'm not the only one.

Okay, then, she sighs heavily, it boils down to me being the oldest and most cross-eyed of everyone, and prolly on the most meds!

It also boils down to you being a darling girl and respecting your elders, and I appreciate it VERY much. It was a delight to read and your stunning and genius card for LIM just pops against the white.

I'm just saying.

Mwah!! Gramma Darnell
