Less Is More... Ribbons

Hello again!!

Please click here to see my unofficial LCI post for this week - unofficial as the challenge is running all month, so the DT didn't have to make a card, not unofficial as in I've been given the boot... at least I hope I haven't!!

I decided to make a CAS card to enter into this weeks Less Is More challenge using Bride Nikki from LCI - just love her, she is such a gorgeous image of a traditional blushing bride, and needs very little colouring, just a hint of sparkle and so usable regardless of the age of the bride...  and she seemed the perfect choice for a simpler card, as she is so classy and elegant you don't really need loads of embellishments

Anyway this is a spot on challenge for me as Ribbon is my go to embellishment - I seem completely unable to be able to make a card without including at least one piece - the fact that I have put over thirty metres in my blog candy and that hasn't even made a dent in my collection is a bit worrying!!

I did worry that you couldn't write on the embossed bit so I added a panel to the back - stamped up from a Clear Choice stamp set I found for the bargain price of 65p!!

I double stamped the hearts so they are intwined without re-inking inbetween

I really like it!!

Please can I also enter these challenges
