Monochromatic Thank You

Hey there friend.  I wanted to pop in a share a card I made yesterday with my gals at Archiver's!  I had a blast with them and can't wait for next time.  So for this card I went along with the latest CAS-ual Friday challenge to do monochromatic with three shades and brown.  I picked up Hero Arts' Delicate Leaf Stamp set at the store and remembered a fabulous card that Maile Belle's had made for a Paper Crafts special issue using it.  She did hers in Aqua and I just loved the LO.  Anyway, I just couldn't get that card out of my head so I ended up doing about the same thing in my favorite color, yellow.  Thank you Maile for being a creative genius!!


Using Fresh Ink's Harvest pigment ink, I stamped two of the strips from Papertrey Ink's Faux Ribbon set.  I then masked the strips off and stamped my leaf clusters, first on scrap paper and again on my card.  I stamped my sentiment in brown and finished it off with yellow buttons threaded with brown embroidery floss.


Thank you so much for popping by!  Be prepared, this week I am posting EVERYDAY with the latest TCM release, so stay tuned!  You don't want to miss these new sets!
