LIM week 64 - How charming

This is my second post of the day, please scroll down and for an explanation as to why my blog disappeared.

I love charms, I collect them, but then never use them, because I forget I have them! This particular charm was bought many years ago and was going to feature on a piece of x-s I was going to do, but never did.......
I was just going to do the masked rectangle for this card with the boat, using my ink dusters, but then I had an idea to take the scene out of the box and across the card and use string, and, and, and.....  Hopefully is still LIM enough for the Less is more challenge.
I'd also like to enter the card into cute Card Thursday challenge - metallica, and Craft Your Days Away challenge who both want to see some metal on your card.

That's exactly what happened to Tracy's blog a few weeks ago Lynn. All very odd.

Love you LIM creation, very effective how you have taken it out of the box. Every week I intend joining that challenge and every time I end up with a more is less card.

Have a good weekend.

This is a great scene Linby!
I think it still looks a simple design even though there is quite a lot going on in it.
It's very creative!
Thanks so much
