This card just kind of put itself together. I love it when that happens!
I've had this piece of scrunched Vanilla Seam binding hanging out in my ribbon dreawer for quite some time. I saw the CAS challenge on SCS was to do a card with scrunched ribbon and I pulled it out.
That was Monday.
And it sat there.
Then I went to the Less is More blog first thing this morning. This week their challenge is colour. Chrissie & Mandi chose....
mon·o·chrome [ mónnə krm ] adjective Definition: 1. in shades of one color: using or displaying only shades of one color or black and white. You may choose any colour you wish, but please keep all the shades you use within your chosen spectrum.
And I drew inspiration from my friend Colleen's Ivory & Lace card. (When I made the card, I didn't realize I was a week late for that challenge.) Boy, am I behind!
So I pulled out the only lace I had in my stash and laid the scrunched ribbon on it. Then, since I wanted to stamp something, I pulled our the rose spray from the Elements of Style set. I stamped it in Vanilla on the Vanilla card. I think maybe I should have stamped it in white because it is virtually invisible! Even under my halogen lamp, I can barely see it! Believe me it's there.
And I finally used some of those crocheted flowers that I bought over a year ago. This card will have to be included with a gift though, because it's much too bulky to mail.
Stamps: Elements of Style, Short & Sweet
Ink: Very Vanilla, Encore Gold
Paper: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Lace, Very Vanilla Seam Binding. Fleurettes II, Pearl
I love monochromatic cards! I have an idea brewing for another one. Maybe I'll get time to play some more.
I wrestled Contact Paper into the kitchen cabinets this morning. LOL, at one point I had to crawl into the cabinet to get to the back and the paper all stuck to itself! And of course the phone rang just then! The cabinets are done though and it seems there are more than I originally thought! Check off one thing on the get it ready to move in list!
Thanks for stopping by.
