OLW#81 and LIM#57

Hello!

This week's challenge over at One Layer Wednesday is to use Black, Cream, and Bling. I love this colour combination, and for some reason I never use it. Along came Less Is More for the week, and the colour theme is Neutrals. I love neutrals. If I can find the time, I am going to make another card (or two) in the neutrals theme.

Here is my card:
I used PTI Harvest Berries, and Hero Arts Say It All, along with some SU! Pearls, and a Copic Multiliner to create the frame. Easy peasy!

That was my second card. My first card, didn't turn out quite as I imagined, so it gets relegated to second place in my show-and-tell.
The flourishes are a retired SU! roller. The sentiment is Hero Arts Say It All. The little flowers with the bling actually belong to a PTI set, which I can't remember the name of. The bling is SU! Rhinestones.

Thanks for coming to visit today.

Stunning card, Michelle. The 'less is more' is so difficult for me you have executed it beautifully. I became a follower after seeing your name on Pauline's site. I just got this award, too. What a great way to find new talented bloggers.

Pat Jandacek said...

There's certainly nothing wrong with your first card - it's a beauty! But your first choice is so strikingly elegant and simple (except for being able to actually line up corners on the frame which I find exceedingly difficult)I understand why you placed it first. TFS
