A touch of glamour......

Morning all just popping in to show you my card for this weeks LIM challenge. I meant to enter last week but the week disappeared so quickly and I was busy making cards for forthcoming birthdays.
Anyway here is the criteria for this week:

The challenge this week is a 
and for that concoction we would like you to include
We realise that this is quite a tricky one, so if there's no way you can produce a card with
actual wire on it, an image or die-cut depicting wire will also qualify!

I used freebie stamps from Creative Stamped magazine, gold embossed the dress and used glitter ep for the clapper stamp.
Watercolour pencil and water brush to colour the dress. I bent some wire for the hanger and added some gems at the neckline.

Hope you all have a crafty week!

Less is More week 263-one layer

Hello everyone, wow what a gorgeous day today! I had to scrape the car this morning and it was 1 deg but by the time I emerged from aqua zumba it was 10 degrees! Really perks you up when it's sunny and everything is blooming. Everything except my card for this week's challenge over at LIM towers. This is the criteria:
We are back to a
 and we would like to have you

Easy I thought, my waste bin thought differently! I've ended up with 3 cards but only one that I think is right, come and see;

I masked off a centre panel and sponged on Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage DI and stamped text from SU French Foliage in Victorian Velvet. Stamped the stems and sentiment in Brilliance black .
Thanks to a little mistake with the inks I've added 2 corners but I quite like it!!!

We're looking forward to seeing Charlie and Phoebe at the weekend so I hope the weather stays fine.

Happy 5th birthday!

Hi everyone as you might have guessed it's someone's birthday and that special someone is
LESS is MORE! My favourite challenge blog who is 5 years old this weekend.
The challenge criteria is as follows:
Whoo Hoo!
Let's Celebrate!
We are 5 years old!

We have reached quite a milestone! It's 5 years since Less is More began and  we are delighted to say that we are still going strong... thanks to all the wonderful support from crafty bloggers from all around the world!
For our special Birthday Challenge we are delighted to be joined by some of our wonderful sponsors and there are lots of prizes to be had.

It's a colour challenge of course and what we would like to see is 
(Accents in metallic or B/W are perfectly acceptable)

I love white on white athough I don't do it very often but it always looks so sophisticated, come and see my card:

The background is embossed with an Embossabilities 3D folder and the die is a MB Peony two stage one with a solid back and the petal one cut from silver mirri card. The stamp is from Hobby Art embossed in silver and it fitted perfectly into the square shaped embossed detail. There is a lot of inspiration from the DT and I'd like to thank them for showcasing my card last week!
