Less is More - Week 14

I'm still grinning and yes I was right I do have face ache (see last post....I won the Pink Petticoat Celebrate Spring Competition).  Anyhoo I'm back with my entries for this weeks challenge at LIM. This week it's white on white and I have to admit I found it much harder than I thought I would, although I think it was more to do with my idea getting stuck somewhere between my head and my hands than the WoW challenge.  The first card I had an idea set in my mind but I just couldn't get it to come out on the card as I'd imagined...it's woven ribbon layered up with a sentiment. However, the second card just flowed and I'm thrilled with it...it's so me. I've made the two layers using my scoreboard to emboss diagonal lines and some criss cross lines, inked and embossed the edges, stamped and glittered a butterfly and added a sentiment.
