One Layer for LIM

Good Morning,
I'm sure you will have noticed (ha ha ;-)) if you have been here before that I have been doing some tidying up on my lil'  blog this past day or so, I am trying not to have so much going on in the side bar and so it is easier to find what you are looking for... hopefully! I now have pages across the top of my blog with class details, catalogues, info about joining SU! with me and lots more, do go take a look :-)
Anyway, I am really trying hard to make a card to enter into the challenge blog Less is More, it is not a style I make a lot of but I always love the look of other peoples. Also, the lovely Mandi is one of my SU! downlines and great friend.
O.K. so I knew it was a one layer card but I didn't double check so I thought that was it. Doh! it's also embossing! which I clearly haven't done, I have however added crystal effects which sort of looks embossed (I know, it's a stretch!) but as I have made it I am going to pop it on there anyway, feel free to discount it if you feel it doesn't fulfil the requirements.
I was actually really pleased with my effort in the end, I did actually make it 4 times mind, I smudged one, messed up the lines on another, didn't like the colour on one... you get the picture, but it is also another reason I am still entering it, it would be a waste not to! ha ha! right, stop waffling!
Sentiment is from Hello You on page 86 of the main catty, it is easily overlooked tucked in there and I used the Rose Red marker to make the line border,
the cute cocktail is from Cheers to You and I watercoloured it using an aqua painter in Baja Breeze and Rose Red  ink pads, here you can see the Crystal Effects giving the embossed look ;-)
and inside I added some more one layer touches of lines and a sentiment again from Cheers to You,
Well that's today's card, I will not keep you any longer, I have waffled enough at the beginning of this post,
Thanks for stopping by today,
Stampin' Hugs,
