Third entry for LIM - Kraft and Kreme

Hello lovely bloggers,

Thanks for all the nice comments on my previous post - means a lot to me, you know. I also welcome my newest follower Anita with much delight.
Here is a quick card I have made for Less is More and it has a little history to it. The kraft paper you see on the cream card stock is actually a table mat from a wonderful Italian restaurant in town (with a handsome chef as well). I don't really think that kraft card stock is available in the scrap booking store that I visit so this was a great find for me. I lovingly rolled it and brought it home most carefully. 
The stamp which is from Kaiser craft ( Flora delight) is my latest buy. I have used Versa Color Bark and have coloured it in for some depth with my water colour pencils. Some liquid pearls in Brisque on the little punched hearts and three pearls from Kaiser on the medallion complete the picture. Oops forgot to mention that the lace is also new.  


I will also enter this card in:

Note to myself - I must learn to crop pictures from next time onwards. 

Wish you lots of crafting joy,
Monica

Monica, you have just got to be the queen of recycling!!! And to top it off you got to see the handsome chef! LOL!

Looks like a perfect piece of Kraft paper to me - and this is so very lovely!! Love all the pearls and hearts on here.

Great card. The neutral tones work so well with this design. I like the pretty lace and the love sentiment.
Last year I too was put in the naughty corner for entering too many challenges with LIM. Ooops. It's eay to forget.
