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

The DT have all used stamps and products from My Favorite Things , you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them :-)

For my card I used this very cute Time for the Bubbly from My Favorite Things. I coloured the image with copics and paper pieced the ‘wallpaper’ with Jillibean Blossom Soup, all the papers are from this pad, I then added Star Dust Stickles on the mirror and bubbles. The wine bottle is from the same set. The ‘Fifty’ is from a Hero Arts set and I used a Bottle Cap Inc Flattened Chrome Cap and covered with an Epoxy Dot. The gingham ribbon was in my drawer.
I also decided to join in the paper piercing too and the edges were pierced using my sewing machine with no thread Smile
