LIM 62

3 greens is the challenge over on the Less Is More blog this week. I have a busy week so decided to bite the bullet and get my entry done early. Green to me could only mean one thing - leaves and so I dug out these 2 very old bamboo stamps by Joroco (now defunct I think). I stamped them in Impress chartreuse, spring green and emerald. I used my alphabet dial stamp to make the word serenity (I wasted some time trying to selectively stamp it from a 'serendipity' stamp but something or other kept going wrong so I gave up). It needed something to make it more of a scene so I added a punched sun. I hope there's enough white space to qualify as a LIM card. I just have in my mind a warm, gentle breeze causing the bamboo to rustle in a pleasing way and that wonderful sense of everything being right with the world. Enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend.
