Something with legs for LIM

I keep telling myself that I must enter the Less is More challenge more often than I do, but it often comes to Friday evening and I have done nothing about it . . . 

This week Chrissie and Mandi want a one layer card and they require something with legs.  The Stampotique girls have the most fabulous legs - they go on forever, so here is my entry.  I often wonder why some of them have their legs so tight together, and the sentiment I have used - almost Stampotique - seems to go so well with this!




For this card I have used a variety of Distress Inks to colour and then stamped with Ranger Archival Ink over the top.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Birthday Sundaes - Orange, Green and White (I hope this counts as a greeting)
Dream Valley Challenge - Summer theme - I have used summery colours)
One Stitch at a Time - Anything goes and DT Call
Catch the Bug - Clean and Simple
Crafty Cardmakers - One Layer Card


I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you. Hugs

  31. Having wandered through your recent makes, Val, it's like visiting too different blogs or perhaps one blog with a split personality. Lots of lovely cuties and pretty papers and embellishments interspersed with punky artsy inky treats. Such fabulous variety! Love them all but this one is DIVINE. Such a fab design and such a hysterical sentiment. Love it! Hugs, Lesley
