LIM Challenge - Monogram

Evening all

Well it's taken me a while to get my crafting hands into gear, been away two weekends on the trot now and it's starting to take it's toll.  But here I am again with another Less Is More challenge, and the theme they have set us this week is Monogram.  Quite easy some people may think, but I had to get the little grey cells working for this one as I wanted to make something that was going to be relevant to me.  So I decided upon this...


K & D are my mum and dad's initials (Kathy and David), they are celebrating their Ruby wedding in September and I have been tasked with coming up with some designs for their party invitations.  If I'm honest I'm really pleased with how its turned out.  I've created it with Word Art keeping the initials simple but giving the '&' some swirl, I also made it slightly go over each letter 'linking' them both to each other, added a few little rhinestones, matted it onto red and black card and bob's your uncle.  The jury's still out about the ribbon!
I'm also entering this card onto the Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog where the theme is something Red! (Thanks Lisa) x

Let me know what you think.
Bye for now

  2. I really rather like the ribbon and despite being linked by the &... I would still like the letters slightly closer together to look really interlinked!
    Super job... I think you'll enjoy making monograms in future!
    Thanks so much
