LIM

The challenge over at LIM this week is a Baby card. I'd already made one which was definitely NOT suitable- (please see below post - lol)  so had a bit of my fill of babies this week but as I hadn't managed to enter last week's challenge I wanted to make sure i kept to my promise to myself of at least doing one LIM a month!

This is not, in my humble opinion, a very exciting card! Although I really do like CAS and have become more comfortable with it over the last few months, I think I am guilty of 'less and less and lesser' and somehow they always seem unfinished?
I am not even sure if the Head Girls will allow a shaped card, so am risking the naughty step by even contemplating submission. If I am firmly rapped on the knuckles then I shall just have to take myself off and try and do another one.
White pearlised card and two embossing folders (good old Swiss Dots and Houndstooth Check), some fabric rose trim from my stash, a wee bit of a pink ribbon and a LOTV sentiment and that was it! (Which is probably why I don't think it very exciting.......)

I am shamelessley touting for votes again too.......if you think my cross over wedding card over at Fashionista is the best, please would you register a vote? They have a bag of goodies for one lucky voter and it may just be you!

Have just come in from the garden - we've had a real busy few hours - we've cut the 150 foot long garden hedge and some of the shrubs at the front so we're both hot and tired now! But at least the sun is shining and is supposed to be with us for a few days - so am going to make the most of it!

Thanks for visiting, hope all is well in your world. x

I think this is so pretty. Love the two different embossing folders you've used and the string of flowers around the top is a great topper!
