LIM Autumn

I've not had much time for card making or blogging again recently - sorry - if you've not had a visit from me recently I apologise - my blog reader is up to over 1000 unread posts and I'm not sure I'll ever catch up!

I did manage an hour of playing on Saturday afternoon but tonight is the first chance I've had to blog the results.  If I only have the time to play in one challenge each week, then I generally pick LIM as my challenge of choice - the original and still the best CAS challenge on the block - this week the theme was Autumn http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/week-90-theme.html

I opted for a little mini card featuring a bunch of stitched flowers with button centres in autumnal colours.  Finished with a matching stitched sentiment both from the Crafts Meow.  Simply coloured with copics.  I like it and think it's pretty cute but I'm also thinking there's not enough "white" space for Chrissie ;-)

So I had another go - this time with lots of white space!  I created a little panel with 3 shades of distress inks and pearl spritz and then used a couple of silhouette stamps to create a little scene.  Again I went with the colours to represent the theme rather than the images as I was feeling a little over leaves for now.  I finished this one with some sheer ribbon, a large button and a ribbon tag sentiment.

Night all
