Less is More # 13

Good afternoon all!

I hope you`ve all recovered from the parties and bbq`s that were going on all over the country yesterday.

It`s week 13 already over on Less is More and this week it`s a Lucky Dip. With the wedding of the century yesterday we are asked to make a thank you or congratulations card. That`s it... no nasty acetate or one layers...just a cas card with a fitting sentiment. Phew!

I told you I`d treated myself to some crafting goodies last week and among them were some rolled rose dies from Marieanne design. I got both the chinese rose and the english rose dies and spent most of last night cutting and rolling in readiness for another card I had in mind.I thought I`d pinch some ready made one`s for todays card.


I`ve used a pink, a cream and a yellow rose.
The leaves are also in the die set and have been embossed.
The sentiment is by The Stampman from the Florals set.I have embossed it with Silver EP.
I have scored 2 lines on the card and added three pink flat backed pearls.
I have also added pearls to the flowers but with hindsight I don`t think I should have.


Don`t forget it`s the 1st of May tomorrow and that means a new month at the St Lukes Charity Card Challenge. Tune in tomorrow to see what the DT have cooked up for you.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  36. This is a absolutly beautiful card, to be quite honest I don't know why you did another one.
    Your second card is really nice too but this one takes the biscuit.
