Thank you card...Less is More 13

Good Evening Limettes. I made this card as a thank you for all the friends and family who came to our wedding in Dec 2010. I am hoping this will be ok for the Less is More challenge which is a Lucky  dip for either Thank you or Congratulations. 
The swirl, sentiment came from My Craft Studio CD.
The photograph is from our wedding and I incorporated it into the programme.
I then printed it straight onto the cardstock, after many attempts to get it to print correctly
Chrissie and Mandi I hope this is acceptable to your challenge.
Thank you for taking time and looking at my blog challenge card.

Well Easter is over I hope you all had a lovely time and not to many choccie eggs. The weather here was gorgeous so we made the most of it and went to Potter Heigham in the morning and then to Salhouse Broad for the afternoon and yes I caught the sun ( not pasty white anymore).
This is my my 1st entry to Less is More is more. The theme this week is off centre.
I used a blue card  and the matting is again from my stash.
The image is a foam stamp by La Blanche and the birthday stamp is from Dawn Bibby Designs.
Both images were stamped with black Archival Ink

My 2nd Less is More Challenge card..

What have you done to me Limettes LOL. My acetate sat quite happily in my drawer until now so I just had to try another card
This time I used a pink square pearlised card which I trimmed so I could have a central panel this time and also to use my MS punch. I then stamped the image onto the acetate.

Less is More Card....

This weeks theme was Acetate which really got my brain working, this is my 1st attempt not sure whether I am happy with it.

I used a trifold card from my stash and inserted a patterned paper behind the aperture then stamped the flutterbye onto the paper, then stamped twice onto acetate and cut out unfortunately I did not get it central so I stamped the image again onto shrink plastic.

DZ Doodles Challenge # 7....and Craft Challenge

This is my 1st challenge that I have taken part in, and when I saw the free image on DZ Doodle along with a sketch I just had to have a go. Please go and have a look.
The bird and the flowers were one image. I printed the image twice so I could decoupage the bird and the roses, but after a slight mishap with the image I decided to cut them out entirely and attach onto the card. I then decoupaged the bird and flower which were coloured with promarkers.
Pink Carnation
Soft Green
Leaf Green
Powder Blue
The large flower, ribbon, gems, backing paper, card and sentiment came from my stash
I have also decided to enter this into CraftChallenge for Animals and Pets
