Lucky Limeade sparkles

Good morning LIMettes!
I am back to early morning creations after my GDT spot last week, which I was so honoured to accept! The Less is More challenge has really helped my card designing grow...I am no longer afraid of white space and one layer! So thank you to Chrissie, Mandi and Jen for their inspiration!

Ok onto this week's challenge which is a colour challenge and it is 


Ok so if you've been following my blog this week, you'll know I've become a bit of a dress designer lol! Well, those gorgeous dresses are still on my mind, and I have a few cut out as I've been playing with different styles, so here is another!

Ok so for this dress I used both the Framelits in the Dress Up set. I ran the top half through the bigshot with one, and the bottom half with the other...very easy really. Then I cut off the straps to create a strapless evening style dress. I then coloured it with my Lucky Limeade marker, mounted it on my die cut stand, added some Lucky Limeade organza and a sentiment from the All Dresses Up stamp set, punched with the Word Window. The embossed  frame is made using one of the Apothecary Accents dies upside down with a silicone mat under the card. I finished with some gems and black organza from my stash.

This picture shows the difference in the Silver Glimmer paper once it's I know it works, I shall be using it a lot more!

I'm also entering this into CAS(E) This Sketch #22

Well it's the Grand National today so I'm guessing we'll be busy lol! I don't personally like to watch the race until near the end as I hate seeing horses fall, and I don't gamble, but if you fancied a flutter, I think Seabass is a pretty good bet :)

Anyway, I better get myself to work, so bye for now and hope you have a lovely weekend! :)
