LIM off center challenge!

Evening all.
Today is a good day. I now have 5 days off of work after working 7 straight days over the easter weekend! Hoping to get some crafting done tomorrow on my day off before we head of to the lake district for the weekend!

Today I have my card to share with you that I have made for this weeks 'Less is More' challenge, which is off center. I actually made this at Julies card class last night, although I took a different slant on the card Julie had made and made this one my own! With Romance in the air with the Royal wedding this weekend it seems only right that this weeks card is romantically themed. So I chose an anniversary card.

and of course the inside...


CS: SU Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla

Stamps: Something to Celebrate, Occasional Quotes

Tools: SU Large Heart, Extra large Oval and Decorative Label Punches, Square Lattice, Vintage Wallpaper and Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folders, Sponge Daubers

Misc: SU adhesive pearls & Very Vanilla ribbon

I love this card. Love the colours (my own wedding colours) and the embossing folders I've used to create all the texture. There is no designer papers and minimal stamping (only sentiments) on this card, but yet it is so interesting.

As I have mentioned that these were the colours I used for my own wedding I though I would share a picture of my wedding place settings with you. I only have a picture of mine and my husbands, but I did exactly the same for the other 16 guests at the wedding, obviously with their names on it though!

The waiters at the restaurant kept calling me and my husband Mr Groom and Mrs Bride! Bless! It made us laugh anyway!

Well I hope you enjoyed todays card.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back next week after my trip to the lake district with my family!

Have a great may day bank holiday weekend and I hope you all enjoy the royal wedding!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~

I love your off-centre card - they're perfect understated colours. Thanks for sharing your place setting cards too. Your wedding must have been a visual treat! I love that the waiters called you Mrs Bride and Mr Groom - I hope they were joking!
