LIM week 21-sketch

The Less is More challenge this week is a sketch. I had the three circle elements already printed from a Kirsty Wiseman cdrom, they were just waiting for the right project and I thought - this is it! The strip of pink card was on my desk as a cut off from a card I will be posting soon. I decided it would be fun to punch holes in the pink card and the three images show through. Added some diamond dust around the images instead of on them for a change and all was looking good. The border from the third image was punched out with a scallop punch and placed on top of the pink card. Then I noticed a small smudge -you would probably never have seen it, but I tried to get rid of it and piled the card. So what was a really CAS card then had some ribbon added, that looked odd so I balanced it with some ribbon at the top, except there wasn't enough to go the whole length of the card! Hopefully it still passes??

You should blag it Linby and say it's all part of the overall design!
I think we all use rescue remedies from time to time! I like the idea of the apertures for the images to show through!
Thanks so much

Is there such a thing as a perfect card? I've never succeeded in making one...I almost always smudge my ink, cut something to short...you name it, I've done it! I think the apertures are great with this design...and your card is beautiful!

Scrummy cakes, I am licking my lips just thinking about them. I like the tiny circles on the backing paper that reflect the large circles.

I think your card looks awesome. You would never know if you hadn't said anything. I think that has happened to all of us at least once. LOL

Jenny said...

I honestly thought it was all part of the design Linby and I like the idea of the shorter ribbon and really love the apertures as circles :)
