Hello lovely bloggers, friends and followers - hope you are all coping with the snowy weather, and keeping warm and cosy. 
My card today is for the challenge at Less Is More, which this week is all about FRIENDS. (Just hope I remember to link it up, unlike my "entry" last week)!!
Please tell me I am not the only blogger who has entered a challenge and forgotten to link their card back to the Challenge blog!! 

This gorgeous LOTV image is called "Swing Time". 
I coloured it with Copics , mainly greyish shades, which was a challenge in itself as I have very few grey Copic pens! 
The sentiment is from a very old stamp set by Hero Arts. 
I created a banner, curved it, and added a couple of grey brads.
I am also entering the "Friendship" challenge at Stamping Sensations.
Thank you to my friends for popping by!

This image is sweet as can be! I like the clean design, the image deserve all the attention it gets, and the banner with sentiment is a great touch.

Kathleen said...

This is beautiful and looks stunning with the grey shades, now that would be an idea for in the pink challenge, pink and grey.

You asked on your last comment if I had seen your SU blog, ni I hadn't but I have now and will bare that in mind if I need any products. Although I do have a disabled friend who is in a Stampers 10 thing and if I want something I usually get her to order it for me when it is her month so she gets more.
