# 264 Challenge at LESS IS MORE -

Hi lovely friends, followers, bloggers and anyone else passing by! Hope you are well and happy.

My 'puter has been poorly on and off for several weeks - it was quite a challenge in itself to get this Post onto my blog, but I was determined to enter the LIM challenge, which this week is

The  image is a Papermania URBAN Art Deco stamp, inked with  Archival Jet Black.

I used white cardstock, and the SU  Woodgrain EF for the sassy lady to lean on, and  added 
some Frosted Lace Stickles to her furry clothing. (as usual, the glimmer doesn't show on the photo)!!
I added a little colouring with Copics.
Sentiment - also Stampin' Up.
I would also like to enter the "Just One Layer" challenge at
Fantasy Stampers Challenge Blog.

Wishing you all a very happy week -

Hi Sylvia, I feel your pain been having puter problems myself for the last couple of weeks, hope everything is sorted out for you now. What a clever carfd love that you have used the wood grain for your sassy lady to lean on very clever. Beautifully coloured I may add.

How gorgeous is this? She looks like a showgirl leaning at the wings of the stage about to come out and do a dance routine (yes, I know the EF is wood grain really). Tres chic!
