The rules were -
we ask that the card stays in this orientation ie that the band remains in the horizontal plane, in the lower part of the card and that it takes up no more than 1/3rd of the height of the cardbase.
Simple eh??? Not for me it wasn't - I have absolutely no idea why I made such a mess of this - perhaps my mind wasn't quite on CAS today - I have two rather fussy and fancy things half finished on the desk and all kinds of other 'bits' relating to my life in general whizzing round in my head - in truth, the finished article doesn't bear any resemblance to how I imagined it to be and to cap it all I then didn't make a good job of stamping the sentiment which looks a bit blurred despite me using Versafine ink!
One of the problems with LIM is when you look at all the 'wow' creations that people produce every week, yours look just naff!!!
But naff or not am sharing it anyway!!
I used cream linen textured card and an embossing folder from the Oriental set I bought a long time ago for the main background.
I also embossed a border die onto the same card.
Crimped some maroon cardstock and put it behind the cream border die, added a bit of maroon ribbon to define the flourish and finished with a button from my stash.
Matted it all onto maroon cardstock.
The pic is not the best either - the light here hasn't been very good since we lost the sunshine at lunchtime - I may have another go at this week's challenge as I've just had another 'light bulb' moment!!
