LIM week 15 "one layer" no2

One layer challenge
I'm struggling this week.
I used an Onare baby stencil I have had for ages and not used. I embossed and pricked quite therapuetic! Lol! I actually used my light box for the first time since I got my Big Shot! Butterfly is an Xcut punch.
TFL and those wonderful comments.


  1. Ooh pretty! super for a baby card and your butterfly is lush!


  2. This is lovely Jan, I love that you've cut around the stencil. Looks fab. Jo x

  3. Hi Jan,
    I love the hand embossing you have done on this card and the fact that a) you have used one sided coloured card and b) that you have cut out around the outline to show the contrast, really adds to the effect.
    Looking at it I don't think I would have added the butterfly or the gems (you know me and gems) I think that a die-cut 'Welcome' or 'Baby'or some similar sentiment would have looked good...a bit like the effect Mandi had on her WoW card last week.
    Just my view you understand.... and maybe something to think about for another occasion.
    Thanks so much

  6. I think this is a really pretty baby card. You've cut around the detail really well and I like the gems. I do think it needs a sentiment! But it's still lovely!

  7. A lovely card Jan! I do agree, I think it didn't need to butterfly, but I like the gems as they add balance :)
