Another LIM card :-)

This is my 2nd attempt at a clean and simple card for the Less Is More Challenge. My 1st one was a Congratulations one so I thought I should have a go at a Thank You card too ,,, I need a few of these !! :-)




I used my new Lawn Fawn Just My Type stamp set. I was awake for most of the night ( hay fever ugh) and this card popped in there ,,, tho it does look quite different from what it was in my imagination !! The logistics are different lol ,,, I used Basic Grey Manila paper and paper pieced the typewriter . The Thank You is a Hero Arts stamp which originally said Thank You for everything you do but I masked the rest of it :-) I also used a Bottle Cap Inc flattened chrome cap, a Vintage Alphabet typewriter image and an epoxy dot. I punched the edge with an SU punchwhich I thought went really well with this image ! Smile

Is this LIM enough ?? I am not sure ,, I had to add the memo thing as it looked unbalanced. It may be a bitt OTT for the challenge so will wait to see what the experts , Mandi and Chrissie and my fellow Limettes say about it Smile

Lorraine, I love the way that you have used the bottle top as the initial letter of your sentiment. Very clever.

This is brilliant Lols ... love that typewriter and the memo pin. I am not looking at the punch because themn I will feel the need to have one!!!
Hayfever is not good here either ... and the wind has blown loads of blossom down ... lots of sneezing and eye scratching.
