This is a special week at Less is More as it is their 200th challenge! The theme this week is celebrations so here is the card I made to thank Chrissie and her team for all their hard work - their designs provide great inspiration and it is amazing that the team comment on every entry.

To make my card, I inked a panel with distress inks and then spritzed this with perfect pearls. I used my favourite tag punch for the sentiment which was embossed with silver embossing powder. The final addition was to add some glitter - it is a celebration after all!

I am also going to enter this card into the Time Out #19 challenge which is embossing with an optional twist of sparkle.

Materials used:-
Tag punch - Stampin Up
Sentiment - Stampin Up Sassy Salutations
Star dies - Paper Smooches
Metallic silver embossing powder
Distress inks - seedless preserves, broken china, tumbled glass
Perfect pearls mist
Glitter paper from stash

Thanks for visiting my blog - I really appreciate your comments. Margaret
