LIM wk 30 Recipe

and the recipe is:
taken from the LIM Challenge Blog: http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/
Take 3 Challenges
We want you to choose 3 from any of our previous 29 and combine them in your design.
There is a list of our previous challenges under the tab heading at the top of our blog and you can also see the previous sketches under a separate tab.
Please state which 3 you have chosen.
NB There is no need to adhere to the One Layer if that is on the week you choose.
You may wish to go for your favourites or maybe your least...acetate springs to mind!
Most of all, be creative, have fun, remember our white space and the all important
"Less is More"

If you fancy having a go at Less Is More pop along and be inspired
I've chosen
Wk 9: touch of red.
Wk10: one layer sentiment
Wk25: Buttons or ribbon.
Wk 28: use ink
This is my first Christmas card... I've never done one this early..and I might come to regret using this theme so early... my teamies at MMM will know what I'm on about.. sorry about the mystery/secrecy to everyone else.  
Products
 Stamps: Stampendous sentiment
               Artemio: Holly
Inks:        Sticky Fingers  Christmas red and Christmas green. I painted the images with the ink as well as       splattering the background  and using on the edges of the white card.
Ribbon and gems  from my stash.

 Enjoy the rest of BH Monday. The weather in Crewe has been very miserable so far... dull and grey!

I really love this card Sue. It's very classy and the lightly splattered background is lovely (I can imagine the mess if I tried that one, lol). I also love the sketchy look to the holly image but the whole card is a delight that anyone would love to receive.

Hugs
