LIM week 15 "one layer"

YAY It's Saturday and that means a new wonderful challenge over at LIM.
My little cat got an extra fuss this morning she woke me up at 7.55! Who needs an alarm clock!

Sorry about the photo it's very bright here today!

I have used Mega circle nestie for the oval, In the Grand Calibur.

To emboss without cutting in the Grand Calibur you will need to use base mat then nestie, card ( to keep the nestie in place on the card I use low tack tape) soft mat and then pink embossing

Sizzix flourish stamp and the cake is an old stamp I bought in a job lot off Ebay!
Thank you Mandi for your tip using the Quickie glue pen and embossing powder. This is what I used for the centre of the flowers on the cake. I have never been a big stamper and I feel I am learning something and loving it each week!
I would like to say a big thank you to Lady Diva lim's Mandy and Chrissie for their inspiration and I look forward to reading their constructive tips. They are usually right I have to say!

I would like to take this opportunity to mention a new Challenge blog which starts on Wed 18th May. It's called Crafting For All Season's. I do hope you will join us.
Thank you all for your wonderful comments TFL xx Jan

  11. Gorgeous card. I really must find out how you emboss with nesties rather than cutting and embossing the edges. It is so effective.
