Time for a challenge

With my limited supplies of stamps and card stock here I thought I'd try a simple challenge this time round. I found my ideal one in the (CAS) Colours and Sketches Challenge # 70 which is a simple colour challenge.


What's more it's shades of black and I love monochromatic colour schemes.

Here's what I came up with

In case you were wondering, the greeting comes as part of the Hip Hip Horray card kit. I did use all three shades (Basic Black, Basic Grey and Smoky Slate) on the card but my photography leaves a lot to be desired and you can't really tell.

I'm off now to make Michael a congratulations card. We learned this morning that he has been offered a place at DePaul University to study game design. He is really excited because this was his first choice of college. We are excited for him and very proud too. This is a great opportunity for him and I know that he will enjoy being in college in Chicago.

Stampin' Up! supplies used:

Stamp sets : Petite Petals, Flower Shop and Hip Hip Hooray
Ink: Basic Black, Basic Grey and Smoky Slate
Card stock : Basic Black and Whisper White
Accessories : Petite Petal, Pansy, and 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punches, Fringe Scissors and Basic Rhinestones


  1. Such a pretty card! Thanks for joining us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

  2. Fab CAS creation in monochrome. Really like the central flower and the pretty design. Thanks for playing along at CC&S
