Less is More week 47 Just one Word

Well that's Christmas over for another year and just the New Year festivities to survive:-)
The challenge this week from Chrissie and Mandi is JUST ONE WORD. So basically anything goes but the sentiment has to be one word. I was tempted (not difficult) just before Christmas when I saw that Linda Brown of LB Crafts was retiring and selling loads of stock off at mad prices! Linda stocked Darkroom Doors stamps which I love and so I had a browse and found they were less than half price OMG! So I bought 4 lots :-) Sadly the shop is now closed but Linda's blog lives on.
 This card I made using one of the stamps from The Lovely Ladies set. I liked the film strip effect, it is stamped with black Memento ink,  matted onto black card and mounted on foam strips to a white card base.
The sentiment is also matted onto black card and I added black pearls.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I'd like to wish my lovely followers and blogging friends a very happy and healthy 2012.

Great card Val - glad to see you're using your DR stamps........ wish I'd known about the sale as I'd have been over there pronto!! Black and white suit this card really well.

Hi Val,
Your card is fab!! I really love your film strip stamp and the matting looks great, too.

How sad that Linda's shop has closed. I have never been to her shop, but years ago, when she used to attend the Great Northern Papercrafts Show at Royal Armouries, Leeds, I would stand in awe for ages watching her demo's. She is such a tallented lady.

Wishing you and your loved ones a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR!! xx
