Because............


Challenge 15 over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges  and our theme is  'Monochrome  plus one colour'.
Please pop over to see what we have been making, and get all the details. Remember we like to see some stamping on your piece.
This card, has not photographed to well,  I will be trying to get a better one if the light improves today.
The bottom left corner was stamped and  embossed before I added  the shading.
All the stamps are by Chocolate Baroque, stamped with Expresso Adirondak.
The colouring is tea dye, antique linen, distress inks also  various brown watercolours , with my extra colour, red, on the butterflies. The die cuts are  a Memory box die.                                          
I used a brick mask for the background.
The words are  -'because of you my world is a happy place'..

Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.

  10. Smashing card Yvonne. The light is not good at the moment with all this low cloud cover. Have your tried the free programme Photoscape, it really can make quite a lot of difference. x
