LIM 52

LIM 52 and Chrissie and Mandi's LESS IS MORE blog birthday, they have been at it a year now, encouraging us to think outside of the box, I'm still trying too LOL.  The criteria for this week is -

For our challenge this week we have a SKETCH and we have a few basic ground rules.


We would like the card to be


  • rectangular
  • in landscape orientation
  • with the band remaining in a vertical position 

As it's a very simple sketch,  we would like it to remain as is without any rotation 
of either the cardor the vertical band.
I had a look today as usual to see what was "on the cards", I like a sketch it gives me somewhere to start, and this is a great sketch.  As I had just finished a Valentine's card order I decided I was still in the mood for lurve,( better not tell the hubby! "laughing")

As you know by now, I am not a stamper, but I do love my digital.  These are an image and paper from Gina Jane at DAISIE, In PS I placed the background paper first, then made a strip and placed it on top, I then had a play to see where the heart would in my opinion look best and placed it. Printed them out seperately then glued them on the card, I used 3D foam pads to adhere the heart, I Stickled some of the chocolates and glossy accented the paper ones in the box.  The sentiment I either read or saw somewhere, it just came into my head this morning.

EDITED - NO!!!!!!!!!! I have only just noticed that I spelt chocolate wrong, will have to print the sentiment again on a label and add it. DUH!



I am goint to enter the following challenges as well as LIM with this card.
