Aqua and LIM

Who stole the week last time I looked it was Monday....... and today we are slowly being snowed in it has been snowing since 11.00am this morning and is getting heavier now....glad I had decided to stay put today and do some crafting.  LIM is celebrating their 1st  birthday and the Challenge for week 53 is  Colour - AQUA. 
Aqua is a favourite colour of mine and so how could I not go over and play.....here is my card.


The panel was made by inking my embossing folder before embossing on white card, I have to say this is another favourite technique of mine I love the effects you can get, I used Baja Breeze and Whisper White SU card mounted onto  Baja Breeze, sentiment was inked around the edges with same ink.
Congratulations to Chrissie and Mandi even though I am not a regular I do enjoy this challenge and pop in as often as time allows.  My card is for you both to say thanks for the challenges and here's to another enjoyable year.

Have a great weekend
From a very snowy place....'till next time

  4. This is a wonderful technique Maggie and very effective with that paisley EF. I was looking to see where you are... snowing since 11am - it's only just started here in Buckingham at 5.30 ish! Looks like we're in for it though!
