Less is More - week 37 - Cocktails

Woohoo!! Cocktails! Another inspired challenge over at Less is More this week by the lovely LIM ladies Chrissie and Mandi. I immediately thought of cocktails at 4 and LBDs so I stamped an old Personal Impressions stamp (inherited from my daughter when she had her clearout) on to black pearlised card using a white stamp pad. On reflection I think silver may have been a better option but hey ho, we live and learn. Then I embossed it with a clear powder and mounted it on to a silver holographic mat with a tiny border. The sentiment was printed on the computer on to pearlised card again and embossed with silver as soon as it came out of the printer (this only seems to work with pearl card) I have my lovely daughter and soon to be son in law coming today to do 'weddingy' things so I shall have another attempt at this, maybe tomorrow.
It's a lovely day here in the Midlands - it's hard to believe it's October with the sun shining and people still able to go out without coats! Off to get ready for my visitors now - have a lovely day everyone!

This is super... lovely stamp and a great card. I think you're right... it would also have worked well in silver!
Have a lovely weekend.
Thanks so much
