Nature's Way

It's that time of year again, for teachers anyway, when we say a huge thank you to our colleagues for their support and help throughout the academic year. I've been making some Thank You cards and I'm entering this one into the current 'Nature' themed challenge over at FASHIONABLE STAMPING CHALLENGES 

I used Crafty Individuals' CI-176 for the main image and two Inkylicious stamps to complement it:  Make a Wish which is the Dandelion and Willow Twigs.  These were stamped with black StazOn.  The frame, sentiment and butterflies were all cut using the Cricut and the following cartridges respectively: 

Elegant Edges
Gypsy Wanderings
Indie Art

I like the simplicity of the monochrome colour scheme and it meant I could use my all-time favourite paper (sadly no longer made) Imaginisce,  Kitsch'n Floral Black Tie Optional.

Very striking Sue monochromatic is always dramatic but this one is totally gorgeous. Love the Cricut elements especially the Thanks.

Thank you for sharing with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
