Lime and Black


Here's my card for the Less is More Challenge week 114 where the colour theme is LIME and BLACK.


I had the pleasure of visiting The Craft Barn in it's new premises on Saturday and I spotted some Cosmic Shimmer Golden Lime Embossing Powder so I thought it would be rude not to use it for this challenge.   The Calla Lily stamp is an Elusive Images/Chocolate Baroque stamp and the sentiment is from Hero Arts - I embossed both onto black gloss card to make the lime powder pop. 

The pearlescence in the powder also left a golden sheen on the card - it looks lovely in real life but was very difficult to photo.  I apologise.....my own fault for using a two-tone powder and gloss card.....maybe I should have added some mirri card as well to make it even more difficult!!

Anyway I hope you like my card.  Thanks for looking and for your comments - they are as ever much appreciated!
