Less is More #8 Take 2

Happy Sunday Everyone.

Hee hee I just couldn`t resist having another go at this weeks sketch at the Less is More Challenge Blog.
This is actually my 3rd attempt at this card, I just wasn`t happy with the first 2.

The first one I just put a strip of bright pink glitter paper behind the image and although it looked ok it just didn`t have the POP I`d hoped for. For the second attempt I stamped and heat embossed a Damask stamp across the bottom but it didn`t come out properly so that went in the bin. By then I was starting to get a bit grumpy. I think it`s because the clocks went forward last night and I`ve lost a whole hour from my day. Hate this changing the clocks lark!!!
Anyhow I came up with this one and I`m reasonably pleased with it.

Sentiment is computer generated.
DP is Pink Petticoat Damask from the Lola`s Boudoir collection.
Image is by Papermania from the Chatsworth collection, stamped in Versafine Black and blinged up with tiny pink gems.
A strip of bright pink ribbon to finish off.
I seem to have a thing about black and white cards at the moment don`t I? Lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
