Honeysuckle LIM card



I really didn't like the card I made for the Less is More challenge yesterday so it's in the bin now :(  and I decided to make another.
I need a Thank You card for a good friend and she loves flowers so , here it is.
The image is  Honeysuckle which I drew from my garden last year when it was in bloom. You can find it in A Passion for Stamps
I think I've been bitten by the "cut out" bug and have all sorts of cut out cards now sitting on my table ready for making up...
This time I cut out a circle, added thin strips of thin white card to form a lattice and stuck them down with tacky glue.Then I added a Nestie scallop circle cut out on the top.

 I've just added a pic of the inside to show Chrissie how it's finished!
