Less Is More ,,,,,,,,

I have missed most of the Less is More Challenges due to holidays and visitors but I hope to start joining in more regularly from now on :-)

This week Chrissie and Mandi are asking us LIMettes to use acetate ,, luckily I had some handy as my lovely friend Alison gave me a a few sheets of a nice quality thick type.



I bought this Crafty Individuals stamp from the NEC and HAD to use it !! As you can see I used some eyelets to hang the image from an aperture cut into the acetate. The card is Stamping Up Chocolate Chip and Ivory ,, bought from Mandi and the image is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I used some American Tag twine to tie them all together :-)


I used a MS border punch and added some tulle ribbon, I know thats not very LIM ,,, but I thought it looked nice !!

I would love to know what you all REALLY think !! I am wanting to get this look 'right' and I know I have alot to learn ,,, so please tell me honestly , I can take it :-)

Challenges

Less Is More ,,,, Acetate
Corrosive ,, Home Sweet Home
Our Daily Bread ,,, No Colouring
Sweet Stampin,,, Chocolate ( I used Choc Chip card )
Moving Along With The Times ,,, Chocolate

Thanks for looking :-)
