2nd post - challenge entry! If you missed my earlier post then please scroll down

Hi there,

A quickie from me, to show you my LIM entry for the Simply Less Is More challenge this week. The theme this week has been to select three challenges from any previously set. Now, I have LOVED most of the challenges on this blog so it took me a while to think of just three!! Have a look and see what you think ...




Materials used:
  • Off white C5 card and matching envelope
  • Two grey card panels
  • One black card panel
  • One cream card panel
  • Art Impressions M-2068 image inked in Memento tuxedo black on to cream card panel and then panel edged with blended distress inks in pumice stone and black soot
  • Inkadinkado sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black on to the base card

And which three challenges did I choose?

Challenge #12 Off centre
Challenge #7 Masculine
Challenge #57 Neutrals - because I had trouble with this one just a couple of weeks ago and submitted pink as a neutral, which it wasn't!

Hope you all approve and I look forward to reading your comments.

Have a fab Saturday - don't know what the weather is like with you but, here in Bristol, its a lovely spring afternoon and I've washing on the line blowing in the breeze! I've friends at the NEC today and am deeply envious - wonder what fabulous crafting goodies they will head home with .......
