The magic number three....

The card I'm submitting is the third one created for this weeks Less Is More challenge.  The second Saturday of the month at LIM is the One Layer Card and this weeks twist is to work in "threes". 

The card to the left is the final version of card number three.  I like how this one turned out so I'm not going to even pop over to LIM and see if someone has used the same set or had the exact layout. 

That's what happened to the first card which was three balloons and a sentiment.  Just before I went to post it I took a look at the other submissions and saw another card almost exactly like mine so I tossed it aside and started over.   

The second card was really cute too until I splashed water all over it and the ink ran.  That one had more than twice the piercing as the one above plus some dry embossing so I didn't even try to save it or redo it.  

The picture below is the same card as above which was taken before I added the faux stitching to the piercing.  I like the top version better even though the stitching didn't turn out very smooth.    

Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Just Believe
Card stock: Whisper White
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Real Red, Stazon Black
Bling - SU! rhinestones colored with Sharpie marker

Thank you so much for stopping by and I'll be playing catch-up on comments from last weeks challenge as soon as I finish the chores I ignored this morning.  ;)


This card was made for todays Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast and after I finished it I realized it worked for the LIM challenge as well.  :D
