Perfectly Less Is More

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I get to show you something a little different, took me about a full day to come up with this and if you know me well and my style then you will also know how hard this was for me.

For those of you who do know me well, please close your mouths, or pick yourselves up from the floor.  Now and again I just like to shock  you all :)

Today my OTT went out of the window and I made a LIM card

So I will shut up and let you take a look to see what you think

I used some gorgeous card bought from the Hobby House.  I then used three of my TH distress inks all different shades of green.  I added a computer generated sentiment and the image stamp is from My Sentiments Exactly.

So here you are

The image stamp actually states lots of different pair types so here is a close up so you can spot your favourite
A not very much used stamp but a very clever one.

I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.

I would like to remind you all that my 800 follower candy is now running and can be entered here

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenge
Less is More - Three shades of Green

hugs
