Less is More # 88

Hello and a happy saturday to you all.

The first saturday of the month is a colour challenge at Simply Less is More and this weeks colour is
                                                           Silver
My first thought was Christmas so thats what I`ve gone with. I do, however, have another idea so I might be back with a second post sometime this week.
I made a 5x5 square card and then cut another square slightly smaller for my panel.
I used Papermania Silent Night stamp set for the sentiment and two different sets from Inkadinkado for the snowflakes.
 I made up my own sparkly embossing powder by mixing some detail silver EP with a small amount of silver glitter and embossed the stamping.
A close up of the sparkly silver. It looks much better IRL.
I added some clear gems and thats it.
I think I might have been better matting the panel onto some silver mirri card, what do you think?


It`s been a mega busy week at work so I haven`t had much spare time this week but I do have a couple of cards to show you later in the week.
I did want to let you know how we got on at last weeks MacMillan fundraiser though. Altogether the school raised a massive £ 474. I am over the moon and so grateful to the staff and parents for making this a wonderful event. The money is to be shared equally between Macmillan and Candlelighters. Yippee!

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
