Less is More week 145-OLC

Well here we are again and another week bites the dust! It was a beautiful day here and I have spent most of it putting everything, well perhaps not everything, back in our newly refurbished bathroom. We are delighted with the finished result and there wasn't too much mess.
Back to this week's LIM challenge which is as follows:

Morning... It's everyone's favourite challenge this week...
One Layer Cards. 
This week we have a simple one for you
Thank You

I was feeling quite pleased with my card and to finish it off I wanted to use my black Paper Pen to highlight the bee's heads and finish it off which I very nearly did!!! There was a slight blockage at the tip and as I squeezed the top flew off and it was  black paint everywhere! Luckily it only affected the bottom corner of my square card  which started off 6 x 6 and is now 4.5 x 5.5!! Come and see:


This card is mostly made with NBUS (never before used stuff!). The background stamp is by Indigo Blu and the bee is from a small Artemio set, all part of a win a few months ago. I also used my SU pricking templates, wow how easy is that, no more random dots!! The bee heads are highlighted with what was left in my Paper pen after the accident:)

The next card I want to show you is the anniversary card I made for my sister Karen which was last month but I forgot to post it, on my blog that is!


Thanks for taking the time to visit it's much appreciated

Oh these one layer cards are terrors for attracting rogue ink and smudges but I'm glad you saved yours Val - it's fabulous (or should that be Bee-ootiful!) The pierced detail is gorgeous too and those templates are brilliant aren't they?! Love Karen's anniversary card too. Vicky x
