LIM week 103 - Friends

This week's challenge at Less is More is a theme, and the theme is Friends. I really didn't think I had anything to make an entry with this week, until I saw Linby's beautiful creations and remembered that somewhere in a  drawer I had an Anna Griffin stamp that says "The best mirror is an old friend". I thought this would combine well with a mirror made from die cut ovals with metallic silver card for the glass and wood-effect card for the frame.

But oh dear, when I assembled the card, the result wasn't "clean and simple" it was "dull and boring" which is quite a different thing!


There was no  way I could submit that for the challenge, but rather than scrap it I decided to go for a more vintage look. The result is  no  use for Less is  More, but I think I've rescued what would otherwise have been a waste of card


 
So, back to the drawing board. A rummage through my stash produced a vellum "Best Friends" sentiment. Not being a dog person, I decided that a woman's  best friend is her cat! Here's my second-attempt card, totally different from the one above, not what I set out to make at all, but a much better candidate for Lass is More, and hence it is THIS card that I am entering into this week's  challenge.
