LIM Monochrome - tried again




Hmmm
Lady LIM Chrissie obviously wasn't too impressed with my last effort!!
So here is my second entry ......

It's an Anniversary card for my daughter & son-in-law - not due until the beginning of next month, but hopefully she won't peak as she is 
very busy atm!


I designed the Monogram ( Initials J & A) & used distress embossing powder & gold pen on the monogram itself. I used distress inks on the background then mounted it on pattered (dotty) card & then plain card


I stamped the sentiment using distress inks & mounted it in the same way.

No more embellishment as I wanted the Monogram to be the 
highlight of the card

ps Lady LIM see the Too late but I'll post - as you expressed an interest ;-)
