A CAS PPA40 Monochromatic Blues

Yay It's Friday Peeps!!!

Today's card is made for the Monochromatic Blue Challenge on the Pals Paper Arts Blog.

This card turned into a long tall is 7-1/2 inches tall by 3-1/4 inches wide. I used the Baroque Motifs stamp set and the stamp a ma jig to line the square up. I turned the stamp at an angle to make the sqaures more diamond shape. I added a sticky back half pearl to the center and the sentiment comes from the Great Friend stamp set. I stamped with night of navy ink onto whisper white card stock. I then matted with night of navy card stock and then another mat of white. The base of the card is night of navy too.

The card is very simple, CAS, the most time was used lining up those squares with the stamp a ma jig, I wasted at least one sheet of paper trying to get them perfect and then in the end I settled for almost perfect. LOL!!!

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for comming by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Wasn't sure I was on the right blog when I first got here - white the overhaul you've done here, Vicki! Love all the bright colours and what you've done. Did you do it yourself or did you have someone do it for you? Love to get the name if someone else did just so I can keep it in my files.

Love the size of your monochromatic card and that image from the Baroque Motifs set is perfect. Have a great weekend :D
