Hello after a week

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card to show you which was made for the challenge at Less is More last week but I decided not to link it as it was not a single layer card. The clear stamp is one of my faves from Kaiser craft and the best part is that I did not have to spend a bomb to get it. Lol. There are two versions here as the first version met with a high level of disapproval from Zeenya. She can talk, considering she does little art these days. Lol. On the good side, she has taken up Art as a subject this year and hopefully she will come back to herself.

The die cut sentiment has been layered as there was lots of glue in the first attempt. I do like the layering even though it may have taken attention away from the flat image. I did touch up the mug with Prisma pencils to make it more vivid. Rhinestones came to my rescue to make it glam. The backdrop is a hand woven batik from Indonesia. My lovely Indonesia. I would have preferred 'warm wishes' on this one but that is all I had and it sounded better than 'best wishes'.

Close up of the highlights with Sakura gold gel pen. 

Down below is the card that met with disapproval from Zeenya.

Wish you health, happiness and crafting,

They're both just lovely Monica, but I do love that first one better too I think. It has a little more oomph! Love the touches of gold with that pen too.
