LIM use some wire

I'm not feeling too well at the moment. But in the middle of the night in a sleepless moment I had an idea and this is the card. I hadn't been to the Less is More challenge since Saturday so I didn't realise that this is not an original idea with the wire coat hanger!
I used a G45 stamp and made my little hanger from some jewelry wire and hung it through the S in style. A little die cut black dress with an edging of wink of stella and a few sequins. These sequins are a bargain in Poundland at the moment for a big bag.
Well - this has just about finished me off for now, but I was getting frustrated being a couch potato.
I'm off to link it up at Less is More and also take it into the snippets Playground as I used snippets to make the card. Don't worry girls I will wear a mask so you don't get my germs!

May not be original but you have used your own style and made a beautiful and very stylish card.

Hope you are feeling better.

This is absolutely delightful! The sentiment is just fabulous and that was a really clever idea to put the hanger hanging from the s,
Thank you so much for sharing this with us at less is more.

Funny how many of us get nigh time inspiration Lynn, it's a super little black number.

Hope you soon feel better.

Don't breathe on me! Seriously, hope you feel better soon and this card is lovely. I get all kinds of great ideas when I'm not feeling well but they usually turn out to be the product of a feverish imagination and don't actually WORK
