Less Is More - Lucky Dip

Sadly I missed out on last week's LESS IS MORE challenge as I was too busy to have any craft time at all and then our internet broke so that rather scuppered plans.  But I am back to play with the new challenge which is Lucky Dip and the LIM Ladies have asked us to be inspired by the challenge header!

Here is the header


And here is my card


I've used LOTV corners, a Hero Arts sentiment and Hero Arts butterflies, all stamped in dark brown rather than harsh black.  Matted onto a page of Basic Grey.

And now it is time to tell you why my bus was late on Thursday morning - it is making me laugh just thinking about it again - put your drink down, I don't want you to spill anything ..... right, are you ready for this .....
TROUT
I kid you not, it was trout on the duel carriageway, and we hadn't even had rain, a lorry had lost it's load on a roundabout which happened to be on the bus route.
There were a few close-ish guesses but the first one in that mentioned livestock was Victoria of Furry Tale Cards & Crafts - email me hun so I can get your details to send you a little something.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this silliness

Hugs, Sxx
