Thank You

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY WEE SEARLAIT!! 18 TODAY!

Finally got a chance to enter the Less is More challenge. I used a Forever friends stamp which I like for a Thank You card but when I stamped and embossed my sentiment stamp I wasn't a bit happy. Think its just a wee bit too big for the card and as I was concentrating so much on getting it stamped straight I forgot about the actual position of the stamp and think its a big too far out from the bottom corner:( But thats how we learn isn't it lol. (I'll wait for tips from the experts) I took my inspiration from Chrissie's card.
Image - Forever Friends
Sentiment - not sure
Embellishments - embossing powder, glitter
Medium - coloured with promarkers

I would like to enter this into
Less is More - Off centre
The Corrosive Challenge - animals
Forever Friends Monthly - for a girl
Want to welcome my newest follower LISA! Thanks for joining me Lisa.

Chrissie said...

What great colouring Pinky!
I'm truly flattered that you took your inspiration from me... I think that the sentiment is fine... maybe it could move a little further out towards the edge but it's marginal. I often try to balance image with sentiment, often allowing a similar gaps at the sides or top and bottom, but when it comes down to it, it's just what looks right on the particular card you're working on... and this looks fine!
