~LIM Week 60 Recipe~

I missed the past week of Less is More - it slipped past quickly.

I'm jumping in this week!

I used the following three challenges from their vault:

Week 56:Don't scrap it
Week 33:Anything goes (I figured I would use this grace card!) ;)
Week 7:Masculine (I believe it is bare enough for a guy-no frills)

*Verve Beautiful You,Memento Ink Tuxedo black,Authentique Renown DP,Basic Grey Curio DP,Oak from Summer's End/Fancy Pants,Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper,deckle scissors,Georgia Pacific white cardstock*

All the pieces on this card are scraps that were laying around my desk.  

I rounded the corners of the orange piece and used deckle scissors for the oak DP.

 I wrapped the thin strips around the larger piece as if they were ribbon.

It has a bit of lift and dimension.

I then stamped this wonderful sentiment that

 impacted me when I was a preteen.

There have been so many forks in the road since then!

Those less popular HAVE made all the difference.

I hope you have an awesome week.
