Less is More week 30 Recipe

Wow what a great challenge this week for the LIMs!

This week we are back to Sketch or Recipe
We have chosen a Recipe this time
Take 3 Challenges
We want you to choose 3 from any of our previous 29 and combine them in your design.
There is a list of our previous challenges under the tab heading at the top of our blog and you can also see the previous sketches under a separate tab.
Please state which 3 you have chosen.
NB There is no need to adhere to the One Layer if that is on the week you choose.
You may wish to go for your favourites or maybe your least...acetate springs to mind!
Most of all, be creative, have fun, remember our white space and the all important
"Less is More"
So much choice and such wonderful submissions on the Less is More blog that it is definitely worth visiting:)
I decided on:
A touch of Red
Something that moves
Embossing


I used a DL base card and dry embossed a flower shape from my Easi score board and added a red gem to the centre. The stamp I inked with black brilliance and stamped directly on to the card. I stamped again on to red card and paper pieced the dress. I added some red glitter and the sentiment I printed out and inserted randomly. Apologies for the poor picture quality but it was very dark here today and I always get a pinky glow on white card!

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment if you visit, I love to read them and visit you as well:)
