White On White LIM Challenge


Posted by Picasa
Good morning. Blogger has been down for about 20 hours and even now, I can't compose properly, so have had to put on my thinking cap, sans my caffee, and come in the back door. I'm saying a little prayer that this post will go up properly.

I struggled with the Less Is More Challenge this week. I wanted something original for me. Usually, I get ideas from others. So, after viewing 50 or so entries and commenting, I stopped my visits and and put my thinking cap on, with coffee & chocolate, and this is what I came up with. This is a 5x5 card on Neenah solar white cs. I punched the MS leaf border and laid it out horizontal completely covering the card. I added the MS hydrangea punch which has three sizes of  blooms. I recently purchased this punch and love it. The blooms were given shape with my embossing tool. This is a very popular look these days. In the center of the larger of the blooms, I placed a bit of silver liquid pearls. On a Nestie label die, I stamped and silver embossed a saying from  Our Daily Bread Designs ...note to self must increase my stamps from this company. So, I'm  pleased with my card  and may leave it up to ogle for spiritual inspiration this week.

Have a great weekend.
Less than 20 hrs. 'til a new LIM challenge....WHOOPIE!

Hugs & Blessings,
Erica
