Less is More week 90-theme

Afternoon all from a grey, drizzly London! We had a lovely red sky last night and the barometer is still saying fair but where oh where is that lovely day I thought we were getting? Anyway at least I was able to create my LIM card a bit earlier this week and not leave it till Friday afternoon:)

Now onto our theme for this week which is


This is what I've come up with:

I stamped a leaf from the French Foliage SU set using the Big and Juicy Spice pad, cut it into different sized banners and popped them up on foam pads. I cut out a couple of the leaves,  moulded them and used pinflair to decoupage them. The sentiment is from Jenny Mayes embossed in metallic bronze and I have added some pearls.
We're having a quiet day today after a very late night! We spent a fabulous evening at Bel Canto (Corus Hotel Hyde Park) where we had wonderful food,  amazing operatic waiters and a surfeit of Bellini's and red wine:)
Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving a comment, I hope, so that I can visit you:) Off to see Charlie tomorrow, very excited!

We went to Bel Canto some months ago and had a wonderful evening, sadly we had to leave a little early in order to get the train home. Next time we'll have to stay the night in London.
Don't forget to give me a call if you have a few spare minutes when you're in Portsmouth, it would be good to see you again.
This card is fab, I love the stamp set and the colours you have used are amazing!
Thanks so much
Less is More
