All You


 Clean and Simple....meet today's card.  
I am playing along with the CAS challenge at Splitcoast this morning; make a monochromatic card.
So of course, blue came to mind immediately.  

I stencilled the corner using Peacock Feathers Distress ink being sure to saturate the edge with more colour and fade out as I got closer to the top.  I stamped the flowers from PTI and the sentiment from Daisy Bucket using black Memento ink.

The card needed something at the top.  I added a strip of washi tape and tied the twine on top of that.  I like how it all worked together.  I rounded the bottom edges and mounted that onto my card.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

Virginia's View- CLEAN SLATE

That Craft Place- MONOCHROMATIC


Hope you are keeping warm and toasty.  We finally have snow but the temps are freezing. 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Daisy Bucket, PTI/ Distress ink/ washi tape/ Memento ink/ Corner rounder/ half pearls/ stencil/ twine
