New Beginnings

It's the dreaded One Layer week over at Less is More again and the theme is New Beginnings.  Well I couldn't think of anything very original so I went with a Wedding card.


The Wedding Day sentiment is a Forever Friends stamp heat embossed, the dry embossing along the bottom is a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities embossing folder.


I made the first one using silver embossing powder but didn't really like it so I did a second one with gold, they were both a nightmare to photograph and I'm still not sure which one I like the best.

I would like to enter these cards into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 206 - One Layer Challenge
Quirky Crafts Challenge 1 - Clean and Simple
The Corrosive Challenge 215 - Shiny and New
Creative Corner Challenge  - Love is in the Air

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.

I'm laughing at your "dreaded" remark. I assume one layer is not your thing. Even thought it may not be your thing, you do a marvelous job with it. Very classy card. Enjoy your day.
