LIM week 20 - Monogram

Well I passed my exam last Friday. It was a really horrid experience, everyone on the course felt the same. Just one more to go now in September. Yesterday I was going to craft but instead got up and started to de-clutter, which led to clearing out the garage, and going twice to the tip! Too exhausted to craft after that but feel better for it. Stepped into the room I craft in this morning and started to tidy in there too! Eventually I have come up with this card for this week's Less is More Challenge which is a theme - monogram. I think all the other activity might have been distraction, as I had no clue this week what to do. I decided to use my own initial as inspiration and took it from there.
I've printed the "L" using a Font called Fiolex Girls from here. Then I stamped a mount around it and then using the rock and roll technique some butterflies, dragonflies and flowers. Mounted onto a piece of Forever Friends paper and onto the card. I haven't actually stuck it to the card as yet as I am not sure if I like it!

Congrats on your exam success and for the de-cluttering... I think it always feels great to have had a visit to the tip to get rid of rubbish and clutter, my garage could do with a blitz!
Great monogram..thanks so much

I think this is lovely but was wondering why it was lifting around the edges. Glad to see I am not the only one that takes photos of maybe cards. Lol Glad to hear you have another exam over and done with. Hope the one in September is a little easier on you.
