Because I care

Hi there, weekend at last and todays card share is very different from my usual style so I hope you like it. I've used stamps from Dusky Damask and Pretty Poppies, the new stamps from Chocolate Baroque and made a very CAS card. It was well out of my comfort zone but I wanted to put this stunning background stamp in the spotlight

It was literally 5 minute card, the background stamp was stamped onto a shaped card blank using Chipped Sapphire distress ink. The sentiment (from Pretty Poppies) was stamped with the same ink and I added a little navy blue bow. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Catz: Monochromatic
Paper Minutes: only patterns and ornaments
The Perfect Sentiment: anything goes + sentiment

Thanks for popping by

  2. I love the blues in this & the way you enhanced the patterning by using a shaped card echoing the predominant shape found in the pattern. Beautifully & simply enhanced with the bow & sentiment.
