I Am A MIM Kinda Girl!!!!!

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well I've kept myself occupied today & played in my wee hobbit. I have played outside of my usual comfort zone today though & I've not used any coloured images.
I thought I would make some LIM kind of cards................boy are these hard to do I am definately a MIM kinda gal...........More Is More!!!!!!!!! Its good to try different things & think outside the box so to speak, so I will show you what I've made for this weeks LIM Challenge......
Is this a LIM kind of card? Its about as LIM as I do lol. I used 2 card blanks but only used the front on the 2nd card & shortened it to layer on top of the original card blank. I used the 'Prim Poppy' MB die to cut out the flower shape & placed DP in between the 2 layers.

The sentiment is from a stamp in my stash which I cut out & layered on with ribbon as well. TBH the only reason I did it this way is cus when I stamped it on the card it was crooked.........honestly I wasn't drunk lol. So I made another sentiment to place over it lol.

The paper I've used is Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle', I cut the butterfly out & the rest of the sheet went in between the 2 pieces of card to show through the die-cut. I've also used a Pearl Pen to add pearl dots to the butterfly.

This one I did first but its not for any challenges & tbh I'm not sure if I like it...... The paper is 
Glitz 'Hello Friend' & I've inked the edges. I punched a few small butterflies out, inked the edges & added Stardust Stickles. I've used Die-Namics  'Rosette' die to make the rosette & added a sentiment to the centre using a stamp I got from hubster about a year ago ;0)

Ingredients..............
Bo Bunny papers - My Crafty Heart
Poppy MB Die - My Crafty Heart
Die-Namics Rosette Die - Dies To Die For
Stardust Stickles & Viva Pearl Pen - My crafty Heart

Well those are my LIM cards, I have made a couple more but I will show them another day lol. I've had to be brave show you these lol.
Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by, I'm gonna go get this linked as the challenge ends VERY soon.
Squishy hugs to you all mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
