LIM Sentiment focus Take 4!

Good evening all,
First of all, I want to thank everyone for your very kind and lovely comments about all my cards, especially from the LIMettes! Thanks to Chrissie and Mandi for your relentles commenting too! And Chrissie, I know what you mean about my last entry, I couldn't figure out how to make it 'pop'. Maybe I will try again...I'm not one to give up on an idea!

Anyway, here is my fourth, and probably last, submission to LIM Sentiment Focus challenge. As I said yesterday, I wanted to try different techniques for this challenge, and this one was embossing using my Nesties...something I've never done before. I've always just used them for die-cutting.

Now this is the first go at this card, with gems around the embossed circle (Nestie Eyelet Circles) in every other 'dot'.

Then I decided maybe it was too much for LIM so I took them off, chalked every other 'dot' in green and added Glossy Accents, then added 3 little gems below the sentiment instead. I finished with a length of crumpled seam binding in sea moss (I think). I also chalked a little inside each scallop.

The sentiment is the free one from Pampered pets collection from DoCrafts mag.

Not sure which I prefer...I think maybe I should've had the gems round the circle and the rest of the embellishment... Anyway, the point of this card was to try a new technique for me, and I did! :)
Please let me know what you think and which you prefer... I value your opinions :)

  1. Hi Lizy
    I love it! Prefer the plain white one
    Id have added gems to the little scallops, but, then that's no surprise for me eh LOL
    Great submission
    Less is More

  2. Love them Lizy, I prefer the one with the gems on. I like a little bling!! xx Jan

  3. I've just been scrolling up and down trying to decide which I prefer ... but I can't really say, I do like a bit of bling however.
    Embossing is a great technique isn't it!
    You are a LIMette of the first order!

  4. Elegant card, Lizy! Love the simplicity of it!

  5. Two lovely cards I think I prefer the one without the ribbon - difficult to choose between them as they are both amazing xx

  6. Both are fab LIzy. I couldn't choose between them. Sue.x

  7. Wow your well and truly addicted to this style of card ! Beautiful card and I love the embossed circle. I think I like it with bling and no ribbon but all three are very worthy :)

  8. I agree this is a great place to learn new techniques and try them out. I actually like your first one best but then I do like a little bling! x

  9. I like both cards, but my personal fave is the first one with gems, so pretty.

  10. Lovely card - prefer it plain though - by a nose!


  11. Both cards are gorgeous, I love the ruffled ribbon, but I also like the gems too.

  12. Hi Lizy, I have been going up and down your cards trying to decide which I one I like best - but I can't do it! All your cards are gorgeous! Sarah

  13. Super card, Lizy...but I think my favorite is the one without the ribbon.
