LIM........Metal


This is my challenge for  Less is More this week which is - Metal!!
I've had this huge 'charm' pushed around my desk for weeks, perhaps even months. wondering how to use it - the challenge is the answer!! 
I wanted it pretty  simple for the metal charm to take priority so  I used am embossed border and a sentiment.  
I'm not happy about the sentiment - I never had one that is either the right one of size!!!
I think it's time I created some of my own Digi images!!


I did make a card for last week but couldn't get a photograph as  I glittered it and it just looked rubbish to I abandoned it but decided to show the best photo anyway!!!

As we are showcasing AVERY ELLE PRODUCTS - I had not doubt which of their product to use. Some time ago I was lucky to visit Kenya's Giraffe Senctuary - I fell in love with the adorable Giraffles so I obviously chose the What's Up image. 


The card just designed itself - I wish I could locate the photograph of a little Giraffe towering above above me against the blue sky, sun shining down and among the trees.
I started stamping the image on cardstock but decided to cut  him out and add Scotch Foam tape to add more definition. I used Memory Box Leafy Branch  cut out several times in three different shades of DoCrafts Capsule Paper Stack in green, cut them up and used Aleene's Original Tacky Glue to apply.
I did start with a square card but which having used a tall thin image a tall card would make a better balence.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
