Silver & Squirrels

Well on this gloomy afternoon I thought I'd make something silvery to cheer myself up so here is a card for the Less is More Challenge week 88 where the theme is the colour SILVER.

I've silver embossed the Calligraphy Stamp from The Artistic Stamper and matted this onto lilac card.  The Thanks is a metal word from Making Memories, again added to lilac card, and it's finished with a flower and filigree brad.  Very simple, but pretty I hope you agree.

Couldn't help including this photo too.  I haven't seen a squirrel in my garden for years and yet over the last couple of weeks this one has been feeding on the peanuts.  The funniest thing is watching a pigeon try and copy the manouevre by standing on the top and trying to bend himself in two - needless to say he fell off before I could get my camera!!

Thanks for looking!
