Miss you lots

Happy weekend!  Today I've got a fun monochromatic card to share.  A few months ago I got the "Delicate Doilies" stamp set from The Alley Way Stamps, and I've had it in my head for awhile to layer them up to do a card like this for awhile.  In fact, I made one about a month ago, but the colors I picked didn't look right, so I scrapped the card and kept mulling over the idea.  Then, I got a few new stamp pads last weekend (two of which were teal) and I realized that now that I had four teal ink pads, I could do it in a monochromatic way.  They range from a pretty green-ish teal all the way to a dark blue teal, which made for nice contrast with the doily stamps.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I layered the stamped page onto a piece of patterned paper from Recollections, and added two Recollections gems by the sentiment.  Then I put it on some teal-ish cardstock for the card.


This card is being entered into the following challenges:
