LIM: Button or Ribbon

Afternoon all!  No doubt you’ve all seen the new challenge on Less is More.  This week us Limettes need to use a button or ribbon on our card so here’s my first entry this week – using ribbon!Hopeful Thoughts

It’s given me a chance to use the Hopeful Thoughts Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!  I’ve stamped the tree in Early Espresso and the sentiment in Cajun Craze, matting the image on to Early Espresso (with a scalloped trim) and added a coordinating ribbon using my bow maker to tie the bow like Chrissie.  I’ve then 3D’d it on to Cajun Craze stuck the image on to the front of a 15cm square card blank.

I think it’s missing a bit of glitz…but I’m not sure where to add it!  I might bling the branches with a bit of copper stickles….what do you all think?

Thanks for looking….I’m off to check out the other entries now.

  5. It is a lovely card without any bling. If you are tempted to do something why don’t you try on a separate piece of card first.

  7. Such a lovely, elegant card. Love it - no need for Stickles - it's perfect as it is and I mean that. But that's just a personal preference - I'm not a big lover of bling, lol.
