Less is More - Week 31 - Colour (Metallics)

DH has bought us membership of the National Trust for our 41st anniversary (on Monday) so this morning we decided to go to Little Moreton Hall In Cheshire. It's a Tudor Manor house with an amazing history.So this is the reason I've only just had time to look at today's challenge from Less is More which this week is Colour and our two Limettes have chosen 'Metallics'.
But back to today's card.



My usual 5inch square card - white linen effect
Sentiment generated in Publisher and printed in silver colour
Leaves are a Marianne die cut out in silver foil that I've had for ages and have no idea where it came from!
The flowers are in the same foil but punched and embossed with  Nellie Snellen Floral punch set
Thanks for all the lovely and encouraging comments last week. I'm sorry that I didn't get time to check out more than a few blogs, but on Sunday afternoon I had a wasp sting and then had a very bad reaction to it and my hand swelled up until it was almost twice it's normal size!! It was so painful and very itchy.
Thank goodness it's more or less back to it's proper size and shape now.
