LIM Birthday

Good evening LIMettes!
Wow what a day! I have been at the market all day, which was very successful by the way, and then work this evening so I have only just managed to make my LIM card for this week's colour challenge, which, for the 'not yet LIMettes' reading this, is shades of blue. I didn't get chance to make as many cards for last week's challenge as I wanted to either......something I shall attempt to remedy this week, though I have 10 cards ordered from my market today that I need to get on with!
Anyway, here is my first card......

I started by punching the border with an MS punch., then chalked through the flowers onto the inner of the card. I used 2 shades of blue Dovecraft chalk for this, then a lighter shade for the front of the card. The sentiment is stamped using Sky Blue Versacolour ink and I chalked the edges of the sentiment. This was supposed to be stamped straight onto the card, but it smudged so I had to 'fix' it! I finished with a small piece of organza ribbon and some pearls.

Hope you like it...I am shattered so I think I should go to bed now!
Goodnight all!

  3. Stenciling the flowers through the stamp to the inside page works really well, must try that idea. love the way your pearls echo the dots.
    I am sure that matting and layering came about because someone wanted to hide a smudge!

  4. Hola Lizy, clever idea Lizy with your punch, a very pretty card.i love work too with chalks.
