Monochromatic Sketch with Sentiment Focus

I have been very fortunate this month, as many of my CCEE and Stampin B's challenges could be combined together.  How fun is that??!!

For the Stampin B's this week, Lois is our hostess.  She challenged us to make a card with a sentiment as the focus of the card.

I am the hostess for July's challenges with the CCEE, and I created a sketch AND a twist.  The twist this week is to make a monochromatic card.

I used my new favorite paper from GinaK which is called Ocean Mist and is the closest paper I have ever found to Cool Caribbean. The only stamp used  (beside the sentiment which I forgot to write the company down) was on the vertical panel and it is a background stamp from Peddlar's Pack.  I added snowflakes made from Spellbinders snowflake dies and Martha Stewart punches.  Added a touch of bling,rounded the corners, CB'd the background, pierced a bit, and that was that.....!!!

Now be sure to visit both teams to see the creations of these fabulously talented stampers.  Here are the links to help you get to the team blogs.

Now remember...we would love for you to play along.  Just follow the directions on each team's blog.

Have a fabulous day!!

Ohh that is pretty paper! Although I still have a really good stash of cool caribbean, thank you very much! I am hoping PTI's chartreuse will be a good sub for kiwi kiss. That is one beautiful card, you do the monochromatic very well.

Love the soothing coolness of this, and I am in so much agreement with the sentiment...peace and snow go together, don't they?? Your sketch is wonderful, hope I can remember to try that one out!! Hugs to you!

Enabler Alert!! LOL The embossing folder you saw on my blog is by SU! It's called square lattice and it's in the new catalog. I'm editing my post now to include that information! Also, if you're still looking for SU celery ribbon (retired) I saw it for sale on this blog yesterday under retired items for sale .
