LIM week 141 Witches & wizards...one layer

The challenge on Less is More this week is witches and wizards (and monsters) but it has to be one layer. I got this digi free from Tiddly Inks a few weeks ago and the sentiment comes courtesy of one of my fellow DT members who used it when she made her card with this image.I took the image into MCS and used the text effect to "bend" the sentiment to fit around the image. I've coloured with promarkers and then added some glitter to her wand and shimmer to the "Birthday" and around the hem of her dress.
We've had a wonderful time in London and this is where we were on Friday evening.....

the House of Lords. I had an invite through my Alumni to a drinks reception and tour.
As our tour guide informed us:- no chewing, eating, drinking or sitting down or use of mobiles allowed! It was so tempting when we got inside to sit down as we stood between the rows of seats, even though we had been told not to I had the most awful natural urge to do so - but managed to overcome it! We weren't allowed to take pictures either, so this picture is courtesy of the internet.We also went into the House of Commons and it all seemed so much smaller than when you see it on the TV.
Yesterday we went to the Sir John Soane museum which I have walked past many times on my way to work when our HO was just across the park. I finally got around to paying a visit. But again no photos, you even have to put your bag into a plastic bag they provide.

It is crammed with so many things to see.Well worth it if you haven't been - and unlike most things these days it is free!
