Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #195 - Monochrome

Hello crafty friends and welcome to my blog.  So happy you dropped by.

There is a brand new Challenge over at Crafty CardmakersJackie is our host this time around, and the Theme is Monochrome!!! 
So, as usual, you don't have to make a card.  It can be anything you like as long as you follow the theme.  
Please do read the rules and take note of the 15 Challenge limit!!

Well, as is my want, I did make a card and I also did a tiny bit of stash busting or, work space clean-up really.  I had a few scraps of paper lying about on my desk and decided to use them up.  Luckily I found plenty of the same, or similar, colour and all of them are from Maja.

 There's not a lot I can tell you about making this card.  Mostly, all I used was the paper.

 I either distressed or ripped the edges and simply layered them up.
 The only embellishing I did was to stamp the greeting and heat emboss it.
 I did try to add a few bits and pieces but couldn't find anything that I was happy with ..
.. and, in the end, I decided that I liked it just as it is.

Another fabulous Challenge from Crafty Cardmakers!

Lovely card, the papers look wonderful.. love the contrasting patterns and the fabulous layers and distressed edges.. I hope you enjoy the rest of this week.. very dry here and hoping for some rain but the forecast is not very optimistic, but I will keep hoping!

  8. What a clever way to use your scraps, Margaret! I can't believe what an impact these layers make--so artfully arranged! I couldn't do that in a million years! Really a gorgeous card! Sending hugs!

  11. What a fantastic card Margaret! I love the choice of blue for monochrome, it's so appealing! This card is so wonderfully open for any occasion and could be used for a male or a female, I should really try to create more cards like this! So many wonderful distressed layers going this way and that way, how I love your style! The die cut sentiment is so simple and yet it just pops off the page, what a wonderful finish to a fabulous design! sending hugs :)

  12. Beautiful card and of course my fave colours and papers. What more could you want. Just lovely.
