Happy Anniversary

Welcome to a post to share a card influenced by a few challenges out there at the moment.


Over at Less is More the girls are celebrating 5 years with a White on White challenge, I love this style of card  and their challenges, so I really wanted to enter but couldn't focus in on what I wanted to do, but when I saw the latest sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch that clinched it as did the MUSE card by LIM DT member Anita. It sort of came together in a flash.
I took the layout from Anita's Muse card, the WOW from LIM and the criss cross pattern from Anita's card and the sketch at CAS(e) as my inspiration.
The background was made using a NEBUS EF from X Cut I picked up the other week as belonging to the 'I think that would be useful' category! The 'happy' die is also a new purchase from Seven Hills Crafts (also sponsoring LIM this week) by Wplus9. I was really impressed by their service, so think I will use them again. I cut it out twice in black and white and glued them together so a tiny bit of black was showing to give it more definition against the white background. The butterfly and leaf elements were die cut using MB dies in silver and vellum and the MFT banner was stamped with a freebie stamp I picked up with a mag at class on Wednesday and embossed in silver.
That's it then, better get a wriggle on or I will miss the LIM deadline, :) .
