I created this card for sketch #402. I used two of this month's release sets from Our Daily Bread designs, as well as one older set. The new sets are Keep Climbing and Mountain The older set is Bird Border and Corners. I wanted to go monochromatic so I stamped with Memento London Fog ink on Flourishes White, and did some sponging of clouds and edges. My base is Mark's Finest Papers - Mossy Sage. The Spellbinders I used are Mega Ovals and Scalloped Mega Ovals. I used a SU! corner rounder punch, and three Carl punches for my little floral embellie. I had fun with this one as I love layers, yet I kept it simple and quick in design. Although I love to color.... it's nice to just stamp too!
Hope you enjoyed it... thanks sooo much for stopping!

Can't say enough about this gorgeous card. Having been born and raised in Colorado, the mountains are very special to me. You have captured them in a card like I have never seen before. Spectacular!

Oh my word, this is a monochromatic symphony, I just love it! I was so annoyed with myself for missing the Labor Day sale because there are now several sets on my wish list. I'd better start saving for the next sale!
