An Old Favorite ....




This is submission number 3 for the this weeks Less Is More challenge. The challenge this week is to hit 1,000 entries in celebration of 1,000 Followers. The Divas have given the LIMettes an "anything goes" platform as long as it's CAS. :)

This card was really hard to finish because I kept adding ribbon and buttons, then DP as a layer or layers; but in the end, I had to just let the water coloring be the embellishment. It was very hard to take this picture and not try one more time to add something else to this card.

The main panel is very old and from a retired SU! set called Heartspeak. When I first received this set I stamped all the images out and colored them in to submit to Splitcoast Stampers to use as the "index" card for this set. After that, I tossed the images in my to-be-used-later bin (this is the bin where I have images that I've colored in while watching TV with no real card in mind) and there it has been all this time.

Today I went digging for ideas and came upon the actual stamp set for Heartspeak; it was then that I decided to pull this pretty panel out and finally use it.

To there is my long drawn out post for a very plain but colorful card. Thank you for stopping by.
