Less is More - week 32 - seeing double!

Seeing double! - well I almost did when I saw this week's challenge over at Less is More. However I decided that this time I would REALLY do some proper stamping (which is my personal 'bĂȘte noire'!)
So this is it. Two dandelions stamped and embossed in silver onto a pale lilac pearl card - 5inch square. The sentiment - Make a wish - was generated in Publisher, printed and embossed as soon as it emerged from the printer! I've used this technique before but found it's only successful on pearl card.On reflection I think this should have been in a heavier font, although it does show up more in real life than in the photo. I added a narrow silver ribbon because I thought it was just a bit TOO CAS
Thanks to everyone who took the time to visit last week and make comments. I managed to visit a few blogs but not as many as I would have liked. We seem to be well and truly into the wedding preparations now (only 15 weeks to go) and spent the weekend sorting, washing and packing the china for Libbie and Stuart's vintage tea party wedding reception - no mean task for over 100 guests! And this was after a day shopping in Birmingham buying my wedding shoes.
I keep going into the guest bedroom and taking a look at Libbie's beautiful wedding dress!
If anyone reading this hasn't looked at the Less is More blog then do hop over there and check it out. I think the two lady LIMs have changed my whole way of making cards - they are so full of inspiration. That's all for now. If I have time I'll be back with more - maybe even more stamping!

This is fabulous.. the embossing gives the flowers an almost ethereal quality! Love it... the ribbon is beautiful too.
I haven't tried embossing a printed sentiment, I'm not sure if I have suitable card... One of these days I'll experiment!
Thanks so much... and for your kind comments about us.
