Less Is More Challenge #19 and I have a New Badge!
How has your weekend been? Mine has been superlative...after starting out a bit challenging for me personally. I checked out the LIM challenge at midnight and took it to bed with me. The following day, I hadn't dreamed up anything I wanted to work with, so off to my email I went. There in my inbox was another email from LIM. It was the weekly announcement of showcased cards. Lo and behold, I was one of them. I'm Showcased...forgive me for shouting, but I'm so honored. What a great card-themed year I'm having...a member of a DT team for the first time and now featured on one of the fastest growing challenge blogs. Mandi and Chrissie are the best pair of divas I know. Thank you so much dear ladies. Your challenges are awesome and have stretched me considerably. I want to thank my blog-readers as well. Thank you for commenting on my cards. That means soooo much to me.
Here we go to the one layer challenge this week...to make a card with a frame. A thought came to my ears after attending church and listening to awesome uplifting Christian music. I attend the most inspiring church. I'm so blessed. Though we don't have a violin in the church band, it is an instrument I thoroughly enjoy. This stamp, Vintage Violin, by Stampabilities was stamped in Memento tuxedo black overlaying a stamp called Music Score by Stampendous that's stamped in Memento London fog. To get the frame, I used a rectangle Nestibilitie and diecut into a piece of scrap then I taped it with removable tape onto the card base front (Neenah solar white) and stamped the music score background direct to paper. Note, I stamped-off the stamp first. Upon removing the scrap, vioila...the frame. I stamped the violin over it. The sentiment is from SU's Apple Blossoms. I hope you like my card and have a go at LIM's challenge.
Hugs & Blessings,
