Fence~ One of my new purches, The Scrapping Cottage, Cottage Cutz Picket Fence Border, shaded with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink (I was going to leave it white but it didn't really show up)
Sentiment ~ element taken from Fizzy Moon Celebrations clear stamp set which I attached some wire & 3D foam.
As always comments very welcome.

Silver Wedding Annivesary

I just love the new technique I learnt this week on the Less is More Challenge Blog I just had to put in another entry: CASe it
 Again I choose Chrissies card. This time I was brave enough to use single letter dies!! (mind you it has cost me money as I had to buy these dies just to do the card, I'm sure I'll be using them again & again!!)
Heart Image ~ digi download from Pink Gem Designs
'silver' ~ Memory box Classic upper alphabet
Other sentiment ~ computer generated.
Scored two lines both top and bottom & layered whole thing on silver card before attaching to card base.
Thank you so much for the inspiration girls!

Friends Forever

Well what a challenge the girls from Less is More set this week!
I took inspiration from Chrissies card but didn't think I'd ever be able to do this. I did cheat a little and used one of my sizzix word dies 'friends' as I didn't trust myself to use single letters & match them up lol!!
I thought this image lended itself perfectly to the sentiment. I printed the image twice adding the word forever next to one of the images. Then using my die cut out friends from the other image. The fiddlest part was cutting my 3D foam small enough to mount the sentiment!
I love this new technique and am going to practice it, never know I may be brave enough to try single letters! The finished card looks much better in real life, the photo doesn't do justice to the raised sentiment.
Thanks girls for a great challenge!

Images ~ Penny Black 'Garden friends' coloured with primsa pencils
Sentiment ~ Penny Black 'Bubbly' stamped with memento ink
Less is more ~ one layer & a film

And the film is....................
