Spots & Stripes

Morning LIMettes... not sure where this week went but as you read this I'm at the Airport waiting to board a plane to Paris for the week.. I'm taking a well deserved break from work and from blogging... no scheduled posts (other than this one!!).  I'm sorry I won't be able to visit you all this week.

This week is everyone's favorite at Less Is More.. One Layer Cards and we want to see
Spots and Stripes
Here are my cards for this week....

So I did use papers... digi papers that is... they are perfect for the one layer card is you manipulate them a little in word or print over part of a card.  The first card is stripes from Pink Petticoat printed as a rectangle on A4 then cut down the middle to give the tent card.  I then stamped the spots from Paper Smooches gently over the top.  The sentiment is Kirsty Wiseman and I've doodled round the edges

For the second card I cropped pink petticoat paper again over A4 using word and then printed the same sheet with the sentiment.  It's finished off with stripes of black twine from the ribbon girl and a embosslit butterfly from Stampin UP

Au Revoir LIMettes... see you in just over a week... Hope you enjoy the challenge
